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.
The Plan covers the geographic area of the County Consortium jurisdiction, which comprises 18 of the 20 cities in the County plus the unincorporated areas. The two cities not belonging to the Consortium — the Cities of Daly City and Redwood City — prepare separate Consolidated Plans.
The Consolidated Plan is designed to help jurisdictions assess their affordable housing and community development needs, foster a community-wide dialogue about funding priorities, and to ultimately make data-driven and place-based investment decisions regarding federal community planning and development grants.

One of the most important parts of the Consolidated Planning process is gathering input from local residents. Thank you for participating in this process and for bringing the needs of your community to the attention of the Department of Housing as we work to expand affordable housing and provide needed services for the most vulnerable populations who reside in the County.
