The Department of Administration's 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan will guide 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 programs. The state-funded programs include the Housing Assistance Program, State Shelter Subsidy Grant Program, Housing Cost Reduction Initiative, and the Homeless Prevention Program.
For over 25 years, the State has 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. The State has also funded projects and activities that expand affordable housing opportunities and providing services to our homeless and special needs citizens.
