[Saturday, June 7, 2014]

 The Department of Community and Economic Development (Department) is preparing the Commonwealth's Consolidated Plan for 2014-2018 and the 2014 Action Plan. The Consolidated Plan (Plan) is a document submitted to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) every 5 years analyzing the needs of the nonentitlement areas of this Commonwealth in the areas of housing, community development, homelessness prevention and economic development, as well as creating a unified strategy for housing, homelessness and community development programs, as well as the necessary linkages for building successful neighborhoods and communities. The Action Plan is the annual application to HUD for Federal funds administered by the Commonwealth for the nonentitlement communities of this Commonwealth. The HUD funding programs covered by the Plan and administered by the Department are the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), the HOME Investment Partnerships, the Emergency Solutions Grant, CDBG Disaster Recovery and Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP 1 and 3) programs. The Department of Health administers the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS program. Interested persons may view the Plan at or request a copy following the same procedures as listed under Written Comments as follows.
