Consolidated Plan FY 2021-2025

The Portland Consortium consisting of the City of Gresham, City of Portland and Multnomah County is required, every five years, to produce a plan called the Consolidated Plan. The Plan also includes the fiscal year 2021-22 Annual Action Plans for members of the Consortium. The Action Plan provides details on how the recipients of the federal funds intend to allocate the funding that is received annually.

The Con Plan also serves as the federal application for four federal programs run by the Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD): CDBG, HOME, ESG and HOPWA. The current plan covering FY 2021-25 provides an assessment of community needs, a market analysis and based on that includes draft program goals, priorities and strategies to address the community needs.
