Consolidated Plan 

The Consolidated Housing and Community Development Plan is prepared every five years as both a planning document and an application for Community Development Block Grant funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. This Consolidated Plan covers the years 2020-2024 and is updated annually with single-year action plans.

The purpose of the plan is to review current and future trends in the community regarding housing and human services. The needs identified through this review help shape a set of objectives and strategies that will be used to allocate block grant funds. This plan is intended to complement and work within the structures of other Bellevue policy and planning documents, including the Comprehensive Plan, the Human Services Needs Update and the American Community Survey and Census data
