2015 - 2020 Consolidated Plan

What is the Consolidated Plan?

The Contra Costa Consortium (Contra Costa Urban County along with the five largest cities - Anitoch, Concord, Pittsburg, Richmond, and Walnut Creek) developed the FY 2015-2020 Consolidated Plan for the use of CDBG, HOME Investment Partnerships Act (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funds.

The Consolidated Plan looks at the various community development and housing needs in the County and describes strategies that the Consortium plans to employ to:
  • Increase and maintain the supply of affordable housing; 
  • Create a suitable living environment through neighborhood revitalization and improvements in services and public facilities; and 
  • Expand economic opportunities.

Public Input & Hearings

Public Comments have been collected through an online survey and community meetings. The Consolidated Plan incorporates public input from the survey and community meetings.

On May 5, the Board of Supervisors approved the 2015-2020 Consolidated Plan and FY2015/16 Action Plan. You can find links to these plans as well as all other Consortium members’ plans below.
