Please watch the following video on the Five Year Consolidated Plan



The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires Newport Beach to complete a Five-Year Consolidated Plan to receive HUD's formula grant programs. The City of Newport Beach only receives funds pursuant to the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, so the City's plans only address CDBG funds and not other HUD formula grants.

The Consolidated Plan identifies the City's 5-year strategies related to priority needs in housing, homelessness, community development, and economic development.  It also identifies short- and long-term goals and objectives, strategies, and timetables for achieving its goals. Developed with the input of citizens and community groups, the Consolidated Plan serves four basic functions:

  1. It is a planning document for the community built upon public participation and input.
  2. It is the application for funds under the CDBG Program.
  3. It articulates local priorities.
  4. It is a five-year strategy the jurisdiction will follow in implementing HUD programs. 

The current Consolidated Plan cycle expires at the end of June 2020, and the City has started the process to develop the Consolidated Plan for the fiscal years 2020 through 2024. 


In advance of preparing the Consolidated Plan for 2020-24, the City of Newport Beach and the Community Development Department held a community meeting on Tuesday, February 18, 2020, to discuss the short- and long-term needs of the community, and how federal CDBG program funds may be used to meet those needs.

An additional public hearing will be held at a meeting of the City Council, to solicit public comments from interested citizens, local public service organizations and other stakeholders, as to the needs of the community. The information received at these meetings will be used by the City in the development of the five-year Consolidated Plan, to implement programs and projects that benefit low- and moderate-income people.

All interested persons are invited to attend:
