Clackamas County receives grant funds from three HUD programs: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Home Investment Partnership (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG). In order to receive these funds the county must prepare a number of plans. The most important is the Consolidated Plan. The development of the Consolidated Plan has been designed as a collaborative process allowing cities and community organizations and residents to participate in creating a unified vision for community improvements in their neighborhoods.
Key components of the plan include:
- assessment of housing and community development needs and development of long-range strategies
- description of how we plan to use the federal funds to put the strategic goals of the consolidated plan in place
- maps identifying concentrations of low and moderate income residents
- an examination of barriers that limit fair and equal housing opportunities to county residents
Emergency Shelter Grants (ESG)
The Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing Act of 2009 (HEARTH Act) revised the Emergency Shelter Grants program and renamed the program the Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) program. The HEARTH Act also codified in law the Continuum of Care (CoC) planning process that is part of HUD’s annual application for funding of programs and services that assist homeless persons. Here is our ESG and CoC Policy manual.
