The Consolidated Plan
Every five years, San Mateo County evaluates the housing and community development needs of low-income residents and develops a Consolidated Plan establishing the goals of federal funding for local programs and projects. The consolidated planning process serves as the framework for a community-wide dialogue to identify priorities that align and focus funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community and Planning Department (CPD) formula block grant programs: CDBG, HOME, and ESG. Our survey below lists all eligible uses of these applicable federal funds. 

Your Opinion Matters

One of the most important parts of the Consolidated Planning process is gathering input from local residents. We want to know what you think are the most important housing and community development needs for your neighborhood, your community and for the County at large. We will use the information you share to establish funding priorities and inform the goals and strategies that are included in the Consolidated Plan for the next five years. 

Let us hear from you! We will incorporate public feedback as we prepare the draft 2018-2022 Consolidated Plan. Please email your comments to

To gather information about housing needs, San Mateo County developed the San Mateo County Consolidated Plan Survey which is available electronically (see links below) or paper versions (attached below) in English, Spanish, Tagalog and Chinese.
