CDBG Annual Action Plan

Each year, the Town of Brookline provides an update on the Five-Year Consolidated Plan. To give this update, the Community Planning Division must submit an Action Plan. The Action Plan provides information on the progress we are making to meet the needs and goals identified in the Consolidated Plan. The Annual Action Plan also serves as an application for funding from HUD for the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.

Five Year Consolidated Plan

Every five years, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires the Town of Brookline to create a Consolidated Plan as part of the entitlement funding process for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The Con Plan  serves as the roadmap for the use of CDBG funds over a five year period.  CDBG funds are allocated to address housing and community development needs primarily benefiting  low- to moderate-income families or individuals.
