HUD requires the City of Newburgh to 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:
Provide Decent Housing
Provide Suitable Living Environment
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.
