Every five years, the City of Saint Paul prepares a Consolidated Plan, a five-year document submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that serves as the planning guide for entitlements funded under the Community Planning and Development (CPD) formula. The Consolidated Plan addresses the City’s housing and community development needs, and identifies five-year priorities for how to use the Federal funds received through the CPD grant programs. The current 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan was adopted by the City and approved by HUD in 2015.
The five-year Consolidated Plan is carried out through Annual Action Plans, which provide a concise summary of the actions, activities, and the resources that will be used each year to address the priority needs and goals identified by the Consolidated Plan. The City of Saint Paul prepares an Annual Action Plan and a Consolidated Annual Performance Report (CAPER) annually. The CAPER reports on accomplishments and progress toward Consolidated Plan goals during each program year.
