Wisconsin Consolidated Plan

The Department of Administration's 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan guides the distribution of federal and state dollars for a variety of housing, community and economic development programs. This 5-year expenditure plan encompasses five HUD-funded formula programs and four state-funded programs that are targeted to assist low- and moderate-income Wisconsin residents.  The HUD funded programs include the Community Development Block Grant Program - Small Cities, HOME Investment Partnership Program, Emergency Shelter Grants, Housing Trust Fund and the Housing Opportunities for Persons with Aids program.  The state-funded programs include the Transitional Housing Program, State Shelter Subsidy Grant Program, Housing Cost Reduction Initiative, and the Homeless Prevention Program.

For over 25 years, we have directed millions of dollars to local units of government, businesses, organizations, and individuals throughout the state to assist with critical needs. These funds have assisted in financing business start-ups and expansions, water and sewer projects, community facilities, new industrial parks and brownsfield redevelopment. They have also funded projects and activities that expand affordable housing opportunities and providing services to our homeless and special needs citizens.

The Consolidated Plan Executive Summaries provide overviews of the 5-Year Plan and Annual updates. The Consolidated Annual Performance Report (CAPER) provides an overview of the accomplishments for the previous program year.
