Consolidated Plan

Draft 2020 Consolidated Plan 

A public hearing on the draft 2020 Consolidated Plan 2020-2025 Planning Cycle was held by the Tacoma City Council on May 19, 2020 and was adopted May 26, 2020. 


Review the Draft 2020 Consolidated Plan


Housing and Community Development

The Housing Division of the Community and Economic Development Department is responsible for administering federally funded housing and community development programs, including the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME). These programs benefit the community by making funds available for community development activities and projects that result in affordable housing, economic development and jobs.


Funding Opportunities

As part of this administrative responsibility, we annually solicit applications from service providers and affordable housing developers for use of CDBG and HOME funds. These application processes are a necessary step in the Housing Division's creation of an Annual Action Plan. 


Notice of Funding Availability: 2020-2021 Housing Affordability Application Process

A Housing Notice of Funding Affordability (NOFA) was released August 6, 2020. Funds are available for new construction, acquisition, preservation, home buyer assistance, infrastructure improvements and a combination of these activities. The application materials can be found on the Housing Division’s Affordable Housing Provider Loans web page. Please contact Jason Mejia at (253) 594-7933 or jmejia@cityoftacoma.org if you have any questions.

2019-2020 Annual Action Plan

Tacoma and Lakewood annually create an Annual Action Plan (AAP) outlining how the cities plan to use their federal funds in the upcoming program year. The program year runs from July 1 of a given year to June 30 of the following year. The Draft 2019-2020 Annual Action Plan outlines how the City of Tacoma plans to use its HOME, CDBG and ESG funds to address affordable housing, human services, community and economic development needs in Tacoma in the current program year spanning July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020. An Annual Action Plan is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report

In accordance with the Annual Action Plan, staff monitors and audits the programs and projects receiving funding from three federal Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs: Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG). The performance of these programs and projects is compiled annually into a document called the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER).  

A draft of the City of Tacoma’s CAPER, which describes the accomplishments of the City’s CDBG, HOME Tacoma-Lakewood Consortium, and ESG programs for the Program Year July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020 towards goals outlined in the 2015-19 Consolidated Plan, is available for public review.
