The Fiscal Year 2015 Annual Action Plan (Action Plan) represents the first year of the Boulder County/Broomfield County Regional Consortium ("Consortium") Consolidated Plan for the Fiscal Years 2015-2019 (Con Plan) as approved by HUD. The Action Plan is the Consortium's application for U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) entitlement grants and identifies the proposed programs and projects to be funded during Fiscal Year (FY 2015).
The City of Boulder serves as the lead agency of the Consortium and works with a steering group made up of representatives from the City of Boulder ("Boulder"), the City of Longmont ("Longmont"), Boulder County ("County") and City and County of Broomfield ("Broomfield"). The Annual Action Plan identifies how the Consortium proposes to utilize its HOME funds in the upcoming fiscal year to address its community development, housing and public services goals and priorities as described in the Con Plan. Each CDBG entitlement community Boulder, Broomfield and Longmont) also provides information on how it intends to utilize its individual CDBG program funding and the Plan also describes other projects and programs that leverage those funded by CDBG and HOME and further support the Consortium’s goals and priorities as identified in the Con Plan.
