The Consolidated Plan is the City of New York's application to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Office of Community Planning and Development for entitlement program funds: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG); HOME Investment Partnership (HOME); Emergency Shelter Grants (ESG); and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), respectively.
The 2010 Consolidated Plan contained New York City's submission to HUD of its five-year strategic plan for Consolidated Plan Years 2010-2014. The 2010 Consolidated Plan consisted of five chapters: An Executive Summary, the Community Profile, the Five-Year Strategic Plan: Priorities and Actions, the Action Plan: One-Year Use of Funds, and Other Actions. In addition, there were seven Appendices. In 2011, the Five-Year Strategic Plan was amended from its original version to contain changes made to the CDBG and HOME entitlement-funded program objectives and activities. The 2010 Action Plan, Other Actions, and Appendices have been superseded by subsequent Consolidated Plan one-year plans.
This version of New York City's Consolidated Plan is part of the City's activities to fulfill federal Consolidated Plan citizen participation regulations regarding availability of the Plan to the public which require localities to provide the public with reasonable access and opportunity to examine the document. In addition, Community Profile and Five-Year Strategic Plan serve as the basis for describing the need for and justification by the City’s public housing authorities, and not-for-profit organizations for proposed projects when applying for HUD competitive grant program funds under the federal NOFA (Notice of Funding Availability) Process.
Volume 1 (Executive Summary and Community Profile)
The Community Profile describes New York City's estimated population and racial/ethnic composition, the composition of low- and moderate-income households (renter and owner), and an analysis of New York City's housing market in terms of: housing availability/vacancy; housing quality, including physical defects and overcrowding; and housing costs, including contract rents and households suffering from cost burden. In addition, the Profile describes the New York City Housing Authority's (NYCHA's) public housing population, its housing unit inventory by number of bedrooms and age of physical plant, and the Authority's conventional and Section 8 waiting lists.
The Community Profile also includes New York City's Supportive Housing Continuum of Care for the Homeless and Other Special Needs Populations. It describes the activities the city will undertake to address the supportive service needs of homeless individuals and families, to prevent low-income individuals and families from becoming homeless, and to help homeless persons make the transition to permanent housing. It also addresses the special needs of non-homeless persons, such as the mentally ill, the chemically dependent, and the mentally retarded and developmentally disabled, persons with HIV/AIDS and their families, victims of domestic violence, the elderly and frail elderly, and persons with a disability.
Volume 2 (Five-Year Strategic Plan)
The Five-Year Strategy describes the city's priorities and proposed actions for Consolidated Plan years 2010-2014 which relate to: housing funded by HUD and the City including NYCHA public housing, transitional housing, permanent housing, and homeless prevention programs; CDBG-funded non-housing activities; and actions to address the needs of persons with HIV/AIDS, the elderly, and persons with a disability.
