Annual Action Plans
The Annual Action Plan guides the use of HUD grant funds for the coming program year. The plan is the result of consulting with various stakeholders, including agencies responsible for carrying out eligible projects and activities, local government representatives, interested community members, and advocacy groups for disadvantaged populations such as the disabled, individuals and families experiencing homelessness, and low-income seniors. The AAP lays out specific goals that address the community's priority needs.
The Consolidated Plan is a five-year plan and a response to federal requirements as set forth by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Consolidated Plan is intended to outline the five-year strategies necessary to address the housing, economic and community development needs of low and moderate-income residents of Colorado Springs. The Consolidated Plan informs the goals and objectives for each Annual Action Plan for the five-year period.
