The Eugene-Springfield 2015 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. The cities of Eugene and Springfield completed, adopted, and submited the five-year Consolidated Plan to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). 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), and
- Expand economic opportunities (CDBG).
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.
