Consolidated Plan Substantial Amendment Public Comment Notice
The Tennessee Housing Development Agency has completed a substantial amendment to the State's 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan. The amendment includes changes in the funding distribution of the Emergency Solutions Grant program. The 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan combines the planning, application, and reporting processes for four existing U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) grant programs: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG); Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG); HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME); and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS Program (HOPWA). These funds are utilized to support a variety of housing and community development programs and projects throughout Tennessee, primarily for the benefit of low- and moderate-income households. Written comments via electronic submission on the THDA website will be accepted from November 11th to December 10th, 2015.
