2020 - 2025 Consolidated Plan

What is the Consolidated Plan?

The Contra Costa Consortium (Contra Costa Urban County along with four of the largest cities - Anitoch, Concord, Pittsburg, and Walnut Creek) is beginning to develop the FY 2020-2025 Consolidated Plan for the use of CDBG, HOME Investment Partnerships Act (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funds within a 5 year time-frame.

These federal funds, administered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) can be used to build new affordable rental housing, provide first-time home-buyer assistance, rehabilitate existing housing, rehabilitate homes for lower income and senior households, build new supportive housing for people with special needs, improve or construct public facilities, including community centers and parks, improve infrastructure (streets, sidewalks, etc.) in lower income neighborhoods, provide employment training and training to small business owners, and provide a wide variety of services for lower income families and individuals, and homeless person, and so much more.
