Eugene - Springfield Consolidated Plan Summary 2015-2019
Eugene - Springfield Consolidated Plan 2015-2019 (Complete Plan)
In order to receive U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds, jurisdictions are required to complete, adopt and submit a five-year Consolidated Plan. The Consolidated Plan presents an assessment of local housing, homelessness, and community development needs, identification of priority needs for use of funds received from HUD, and presents strategies to address the priority needs. HUD funding is delivered through a combination of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) funds that must be used to advance the following statutory objectives that primarily support low-income and moderate-income residents:
  • Provide decent, safe, and affordable housing (CDBG and HOME)
  • Create suitable living environments (CDBG)
  • Expand economic opportunities (CDBG)
Since 1992 and continuing with this plan, the cities of Eugene and Springfield work together to develop the Eugene-Springfield Consolidated Plan. This collaboration allows for consideration of needs for the metropolitan area as a whole, development of a shared goals and strategies, and more efficient use of limited resources for plan development and reporting. A joint plan is required given that Eugene and Springfield receive HOME funds as a Consortium. Eugene and Springfield receive separate allocations of CDBG funds each year.
