Each year Community Development provides multiple reports to the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

5 Year Consolidated Plan

Every 5 years, the City of Raleigh drafts a Consolidated Plan. The Consolidated Plan acts like an application for funding to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). To develop the Consolidated Plan, staff uses public meetings and hearings as well as data analysis.  These resources provide the necessary tools in determining the concerns and needs of the area. The plan provides a way to pinpoint the concerns and needs the department is able to focus on. To address the needs, the plan also lays out the goals that will be set to show how the needs are being addressed. Funds and resources that the Department will use are also identified.  Once the Consolidated Plan has been approved by Council, it is submitted to HUD.

2021-2022 Annual Action Plan

Every year, the City of Raleigh has to provide an update on the Five-Year Consolidated Plan. To give this update, every year Housing and Neighborhoods Department must submit an Action Plan. The Action Plan provides information on the progress we are making to meet the needs and goals identified in the Consolidated Plan. The Annual Action Plan is also an application for funding from HUD for the following federal programs: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG).

Public Hearing for FY2022-2023 Annual Action Plan

A virtual public hearing related to the one-year Annual Action Plan for 2022-2023 will be held during the Raleigh City Council evening meeting on Tuesday, December 7 after 7 p.m. This is an opportunity for residents to share their thoughts on the City’s housing and community development needs and the City’s past performance in addressing them.

Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER)

Each year, the City submits a Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.  

This report summarizes how the City used federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME, Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), CARES Act, and local funding in carrying out its housing and community development programs from July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021.  A summary of the report is also included.

Affordable Housing Location Policy

The purpose of the Affordable Housing Location Policy is to set forth desired outcomes relative to the creation or preservation of affordable multi-family rental housing with the overall goal of affirmatively furthering fair housing choice for all residents.

Affordable Housing Improvement Plan

The Raleigh City Council adopted this Affordable Housing Improvement Plan on October 20, 2015 for FY2016-FY2020. Increasing the supply of affordable housing and neighborhood revitalization are major objectives of the City’s Strategic Plan. 

CARES Act Funds

For information on the funds that were allocated under the The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was created on March 27, 2020, please visit the Community Development CARES Act page.

Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI). 

The Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI) is a review of a jurisdiction’s laws, regulations, and administrative policies, procedures, and practices affecting the location, availability, and accessibility of housing. It is also an assessment of conditions, both public and private, affecting fair housing choice. In 2015, The City of Raleigh partnered with the Town of Cary, Raleigh Housing Authority, Wake County, and the Housing Authority of the County of Wake to prepare a regional Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice (AI). In late 2019, all five entities combined to provide a comprehensive, regional analysis.

HUD Income Limits
