Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Consolidated Plan

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), and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), and $3 million from the National Housing Trust Fund (HTF). The plan covers a five-year period and is updated annually. 

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.

The 2019 Annual Action Plan is the last update of the five-year Consolidated Plan for the period 2015 - 2019 and outlines the proposed funding allocations and goals for the program year July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020. The proposed Plan was submitted to HUD on May 17, 2019. No further updates will be provided until HUD's review is complete.

Vermont's allocations for 2019 are; $6,920,250 for CDBG; $3,005,732 for HOME; $650,838 for ESG; and $3 million from the HTF.
