HUD Consolidated Plan

HUD 2015 Consolidated Plan

The Eugene-Springfield 2015 Consolidated Plan will present an assessment of local housing, homelessness, and community development needs, identify priority needs for use of funds received from HUD, and present strategies to address the priority needs.  Eugene and Springfield must complete, adopt, and submit a new five-year Consolidated Plan to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) by May 15, 2015.  CDBG and HOME 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, 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 a formula allocation of HOME funds as a Consortium.  Eugene and Springfield receive separate formula allocations of CDBG funds each year.

About the HUD Consolidation Plan
The Consolidated Plan is a comprehensive planning process to identify housing, homeless, community and economic development needs and resources, followed by the development of a five-year plan outlining how those needs will be met. Through the plan, HUD requires communities to establish priorities and to measure whether activities set in motion by the plan are actually addressing those priorities. The Cities of Eugene and Springfield work collaboratively with Lane County Human Services Commission, the Housing and Community Services Agency of Lane County (HACSA), and other partners engaged in housing and social services delivery to develop the Five-Year Consolidated Plan.

The Consolidated Plan identifies activities to address needs in our community. Each year, a One-Year Action Plan is developed to address how the City will work to achieve the goals of the Consolidated Plan with the current annual allocation of funds. The use of funds outlined in each One-Year Action Plan is approved by the City Council. 

Outcomes are continually monitored and reported annually in the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). This report measures the outcomes of activities developed to meet goals established in the Consolidated Plan.
