Revisions and Update to Consolidated Plan – Proposed Rule 24 C.F.R. Part 91, Federal Register, Vol. 69, No. 250 (December 30, 2004)

The Consolidated Plan on “ConPlan” is a document that jurisdictions must submit to HUD in order to obtain HOME, CDBG and other federal monies to fund programs that primarily benefit lower income persons. Among other things, the proposed regulations require more consistency between the ConPlan and PHA (Public Housing Agency) Plan, “clarify” the definition of “chronic homelessness” purportedly to bring the ConPlan regs in line with the Administration’s goal of ending homelessness by 2012, and require jurisdictions to described specifically what steps they will take to remove barriers to affordable housing.
