AND 2015 ACTION PLAN

City of Hillsboro

The Consolidated Plan is a strategic planning document, resulting from 18 months of planning and public participation, which sets local strategies and priorities for allocating the federal funding over the five-year timeframe.  It acts as a combined plan and application to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for federal funds available to counties and cities under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) formula programs.  Washington County, the City of Beaverton and the City of Hillsboro each receive an annual CDBG entitlement grant.  In addition, Washington County annually receives HOME and ESG program funds on behalf of the entire county.  Action Plans are annual components of the Consolidated Plan that specifically describe how Washington County and the City of Beaverton will spend scarce federal resources over a one-year period for activities serving low- and moderate-income persons, the homeless, and persons with special needs.

The Draft 2015 – 2020 Consolidated Plan and the 2015 Action Plan are available for public review and comment from Tuesday, March 10 through Thursday, April 9, 2015.  Copies can be found during regular business hours at all Washington County Cooperative Library branches and the City of Beaverton’s Development Division located at The Beaverton Building at “The Beaverton Round” (address below).   Copies of the draft plan documents can also be obtained from Washington County Office of Community Development located at 328 W Main Suite 100 in Hillsboro or by calling 503-846-8814.  In addition, you may download a version of the plans via the County’s website:
