What is the Consolidated Plan and AI

View the Fact Sheet HERE

Every five years The City of Charlottesville and the HOME Consortium undertakes a comprehensive review of the City and the regions housing and community development conditions and needs. That review becomes the Consolidated Plan and includes:

  • Needs Analysis
  • Housing Market Analysis
  • Strategic Plan
  • Annual Action Plan

The Consolidated Plan guides the use of Federal grants that assist low to moderate income persons in the City and the region. The Plan sets out the funding for programs and projects to help create jobs, provide job training, improve neighborhoods; create and preserve affordable housing, and more.

What is the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI)?

This is an analysis to identify impediments to fair housing choice within the region with the intent of taking appropriate actions to overcome the effects of impediments identified. Housing is a basic need, and safe, decent and affordable housing benefits individuals and our community in numerous ways. The availability and location of housing impacts transportation, economic development, and individual and family well-being.

The City and the HOME Consortium will identify those barriers through:

  • A review of land use and housing plans
  • A review of housing, economic, social, disability and segregation data
  • Interviews, meetings and surveys to gain input from stakeholder organizations
  • A survey and a public hearing to gather input from the public

Why should I be involved?

As part of the planning process, we need your opinions on how the Federal funds should be spent. TJPDC and the City want to hear from you about what you believe are the needs and strengths in your communities, so that together, we will develop plans that will best put these grant funds to use in your neighborhoods and communities.

 Data collection and analysis, and meetings with groups in the region, will take place between October 2017 and February 2018. Public meetings will be held in the Spring of 2018 to present the draft plans and receive input. The plans must be finalized and submitted to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) by May 15, 2018.
