Federal Grant Programs

The U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires state and local governments to produce a five-year Consolidated Plan and annual action plan in order to receive funds from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG), and the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) formula grant programs.
