Information about Vermont's housing and community development priorities can be found in the HUD Consolidated Plan. The plan constitutes the State's application for approximately $10.5 million provided annually to the state by HUD's Office of Community Planning and Development for the Community Development Block Grants (CBDG), Home Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), and $3 million from the National Housing Trust Fund (HTF). The Department updates the plan annually and does a major renewal of the plan every five years. The current five year plan cover program years 2015 - 2019.
The priority needs identified in the plan are based on an extensive housing needs assessment, market analysis, and citizen and stakeholder input. The plan establishes goals for meeting these needs over a five-year period that reflect anticipated resources and past performance. Each goal is accompanied by an estimate of resources that will be used to meet it as well as outcome indicators that will be used to evaluate the State’s performance.
