Action Plan

Every spring an annual Action Plan is developed to describe how the state will use that year’s annual allocation of HUD formula funds to meet affordable housing and community development needs. Action Plans are annual updates to the five-year Consolidated Plan. The Action Plan is amended when the state is allocated additional HUD funds or other substantial changes are necessary. The Action Plans follow HUD’s plan template.

Consolidated Plan

The Consolidated Plan is a five-year planning document required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to be submitted by all jurisdictions that directly receive HUD formula funds. The Washington State Consolidated Plan and annual Action Plans determine priorities, establish strategic goals, and allocate resources for HUD funds administered by Commerce: the state Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), HOME Investment Partnership (HOME), Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), and National Housing Trust Fund programs. Commerce is the lead agency responsible for developing and implementing the Washington State Consolidated Plan, which follows HUD’s template.

Residential Anti-Displacement and Relocation Assistance Plan

In accordance with 24 CFR 42, the Residential Anti-Displacement and Relocation Assistance Plan  identifies the steps that Commerce will take to minimize the displacement of persons from their homes, to provide relocation assistance for lower-income tenants and to replace lower-income dwellings, demolished or converted to a use other than lower-income housing in connection with projects assisted with funds provided under the CDBG and/or HOME Program(s).

Performance Evaluation Report

Every fall Commerce submits an annual Performance Evaluation Report on the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds it administers. Following HUD’s reporting template, the Performance Evaluation Report describes the programs’ activities and accomplishments during the state’s July – June program year.
