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.
