Consolidated Plan

Draft Consolidated Plan for Fiscal Year 2022-2026 Available for Review

A draft of Arlington County’s 5-Year Consolidated Plan is available for review.  The Plan is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and provides the strategic framework for housing, homelessness, community development, and economic development activities supported by HUD funds over the next 5-year period. This 5-year Consolidated Plan captures data on demographics and identifies long-term objectives on the use of federal and local funds. An Annual Action Plan for FY 2022 describes how federal grant funds will be used.

The public is invited to comment on the draft Consolidated Plan, including the annual Action Plan, and draft Fair Housing Plan, at the following meetings, to be held virtually:

The Consolidated Plan provides the strategic framework for the County’s housing and community development goals over the next five-year period. The plan is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and sets the vision for allocating federal resources to housing, homelessness, community development and special needs. Arlington County is the direct recipient of federal CDBG and HOME funds, and partners with the City of Falls Church as a subrecipient agency through a cooperation agreement.

For a complete list and description of projects recommended for funding through the Community Development Fund (CDBG, Community Service Block Grants, and Affordable Housing Investment Fund Housing Services), see the County Manager’s proposed FY 2016 budget.

  • Affordable Housing
  • Homelessness
  • Neighborhood Strategy Areas
  • Community Development
  • Citizen Participation
  • Institutional Structure

Action Plan documents consist of three parts:

  • Citizen Summary – this document summarizes the  goals, objectives, allocations and performance measures for the fiscal year which begins July 1st.
  • HUD Narratives – these narratives are submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to meet federal regulations and receive federal funds.
  • Projects – this chart summarizes program allocations and includes expected accomplishments by subrecipients.
