Consolidated Planning

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires that all programs funded under the CPD formula block grant, including CDBG, comply with the Consolidated Planning process. This process includes a Consolidated Plan (ConPlan) every five years where the jurisdiction (State of Tennessee) assesses its affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions and discribes how these programs intend to use funds to meet these needs. Each year the state must also develop an Annual Action Plan (AAP) that falls under the ConPlan, specifying the intended use of funds for the upcoming program year. Also, the state must develop a Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) each year to report of the progress and the accomplishments of each of the CPD programs. Copies any of these documents for a given program year cab be found on the Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA) at
