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 APP lays out specific goals that address the community's priority needs.
The Consolidated Plan is a response to federal requirements, as set forth by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and is intended to outline the long-term strategies necessary to address the housing, economic and community development needs of low and moderate-income residents of Colorado Springs. The Annual Action Plan details the proposed projects, goals and objectives for each year of the five-year plan.
