5-Year Consolidated Plan

In order to receive grant funds to redistribute throughout Lake County, the Community Development Division must develop a Housing and Community Development Consolidated Plan. The Consolidated Plan provides a vision for housing and community development in Lake County. It serves as Lake County’s application to receive CDBG, ESG, and HOME funding. It is a plan that describes community needs, resources, and priorities; sets goals; and establishes strategies to meet those goals. 

2015 – 2019 Housing and Community Development Consolidated Plan

 2010-2014 Consolidated Plan - REVISED FINAL


Per the Lake County Citizen Participation Plan, some changes to the Consolidated Plan require formal amendments.  The following are amendments.

There is a current proposed amendment as related to Goal 1.5 Tenant Based Rental Assistance, please visit the Annual Action Plan page under the Plans tab of the Community Development section of this website to view the amendment.  Questions, please call the Lake County Community Development Division at 847.377.2475

Citizen Participation




Lake County strongly encourages its residents to get involved in the decision making process for the use of grant funds. This input assists the Community Development Commission to make appropriate and valuable decisions. The process for providing this input is located in the Lake County Citizen Participation Plan. Bound copies of the plan are available at the Community Development Division office.
