As an entitlement community receiving Community Development Block Grant funds (CDBG), Travis County must draft a Consolidated Plan for submission to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Consolidated Plans are completed every 3, 5 or 6 years depending on the interests of each jurisdiction. Travis County has chosen to complete its Con Plan every 5 years.

Specifically, the Consolidated Plan is a document that includes:

  1. an assessment of the housing and community development needs;
  2. a strategic plan for addressing those needs; and
  3. a one year Action Plan for the use of CDBG funds.

Program Year 2019-2023 Consolidated Plan

The County recently completed its fourth Consolidated Plan spanning October 1, 2019 through September 30, 2024 (PY19-23). The PY19-23 Consolidated Plan includes data on community needs and strategic goals for this five-year period and an Annual Action Plan that outlines the projects and goals for Program Year 2019. Activities to be undertaken over the consolidated planning period were organized into six broad categories as follows: Infrastructure, Housing, Community Services, Populations with Specialized Needs, Public Facilities and Business and Jobs. The PY19-23 ConPlan was substantially amended on June 30, 2020 to add the new CDBG-CV projects which also resulted in a revision to the category priorities. The categories were ranked as High or Low Priorities. The table below summarizes the prioritization for the planning period:
