The 3- to 5-year Consolidated Plan describes a jurisdiction’s community development priorities and multiyear goals for using Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grants Program (ESG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA).
The ESG application is part of the jurisdiction's Consolidated Plan. This planning document contains a description of the community's homeless assistance needs, details available resources, and provides a five-year plan and a yearly action plan identifying the ESG projects. Its preparation must include citizen participation and public involvement.
Each jurisdiction should submit its Consolidated Plan to the local HUD field office no later than 45 days before the start of its consolidated program year in accordance to the regulations at 24 CFR Part 91.
Annual Action Plan
The Consolidated Plan is carried out through Annual Action Plans, which provide a concise summary of the actions, activities, and the specific federal and non-federal resources that will be used each year to address the priority needs and specific goals identified by the Consolidated Plan. Grantees are required to post their Annual Action Plan online.
State and local governments that receive CDBG, HOME, ESG, and HOPWA funds report all activity occurring through the last day of the program year in the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). Annual performance reports are due 90 days after the close of the grantee's consolidated program year. Grantees request their ESG payments using Integrated Disbursement and Information System (IDIS) and report their accomplishments in the community's CAPER for all its community development programs. Grantees are required to post their CAPER online.
