Five Year Consolidated Plan 2015-2019

CDBG Five Year Consolidated Plan 2015-2019

HUD requires the City of Newburgh complete a five year consolidated plan as a part of its CDBG entitlement funding.    The  Five Year Consolidated Plan describes the housing and community needs of low and moderate income residents as well as the strategies and resources the City of Newburgh plan to use to address those needs over a five year period of time.   Community Development is tasked with addressing three HUD objectives:

1.       Provide Decent Housing
2.       Provide Suitable Living Environment
3.       Provide Expanded Economic Opportunity

Public participation is an important component of the planning process and each annual action plan.  Community input from residents and key stakeholders provides the City with a set of priorities in framing the plan. 

The document is available below and at the Newburgh Free Library, City Clerk’s Office and the Department of Planning & Development.  

Additionally, Community Development must develop and annual action plan each program year
