2020 Consolidated Plan Process
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.
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. The 2015 Consolidated Plan, along with other City housing and human service plans and reports for HUD are available.
Similarly, Eugene must update the fair housing document, called the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI). The AI identifies fair housing issues as well as actions to further fair housing across the cities.
The process to develop the Consolidated Plan for the 2020-2024 period and AI is now underway. The process includes comprehensive data collection, consultations with public and private agencies, and extensive community engagement.
