FY 2024-2027 Consolidated Plan

The Consolidated Plan is prepared every three to five years to identify how Santa Rosa will allocate it’s federal funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the HOME Investment Partnership (HOME), Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons With Aids (HOPWA) programs. Its planning process serves as the framework for a community-wide dialogue to identify housing and community services needs and priorities. Beginning in early January 2024 and through mid-February, Santa Rosa residents will be encouraged to share their insights through a virtual and in-person community forum, a stakeholders meeting, and a community-wide survey. Please subscribe to the Homelessness Solutions mailing list to be notified of updates.

More Information

The Consolidated Plan is the City’s three to five-year plan for federally funded programs. The City participates in three federal programs:  

  1. Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program 
  2. HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) program 
  3. Housing Opportunities for Persons with HIV/AIDS (HOPWA)

The next Consolidated Plan cycle is for the years 2024-2027. The Plan will help the City to assess affordable housing and community needs and market conditions, and to make data-driven, place-based investment decisions with the intent to yield financial and social and/or environmental returns to address the needs of marginalized communities. Based on the needs assessment and market analysis, the City will develop goals and prioritize the federal funding on those identified housing and community needs. Future spending allocations must be consistent with the priorities outlined in the Consolidated Plan.

The Consolidated Plan is carried out through Annual Action Plans, which provide a concise summary of the actions, activities, and the specific federal resources that will be used each year to address the priority needs and specific goals identified by the Consolidated Plan. Grantees report on accomplishments and progress toward Consolidated Plan goals each year in the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). 

Federal Funding

Annually, the City receives approximately $1,350,000 from the CDBG program, approximately $775,000 from the HOME program, and approximately $450,000 from the HOPWA program. HUD determines the annual allocations each year, usually during the first quarter of the calendar year.

Use of Funds

The CDBG funds can be used for activities ranging from public services to capital (brick and mortar) projects. The activities must primarily benefit low-income households. HOME funds are primarily for the development of new affordable housing and for Tenant-Based Rental Assistance. HOPWA funds are used to provide housing assistance and supportive services designed to reduce or prevent homelessness for persons living with HIV (PLWH). HOPWA seeks to increase the availability of decent, safe, and affordable housing for low-income PLWH.
