Just when Minnesota Housing's 2012 Affordable Housing Plan has been put to rest, the state housing agency joined by DEED and DHS brings us the Consolidated Plan for review and comment. But there isn't much time.
The Consolidated Plan is a federally mandated, five-year plan laying out priorities for spending federal block grant funds for housing and community development needs. Distribution of funding under CDBG, HOME, Emergency Solutions Grant, and Housing for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) block grants all must conform to the Consolidated Plan, so it's an important document.
MHP hopes that the overview and analysis below will help enable readers to provide their own comments to the state on Minnesota's 2012-16 Con Plan draft before the January 1, 2012 deadline.
