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. 

A one-year Action Plan identifies programs, projects and CDBG funding levels undertaken during any given year. The current 2015-2019 Five-Year Consolidated Plan and 2019-2020 Action Plan were previously adopted by the City Council and expire at the end of June 2020. 


The City of Newport Beach has prepared the Draft 2020-24 Consolidated Plan, 2020-21 Annual Action Plan, and Citizen Participation Plan in accordance with U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requirements to prepare and submit a Consolidated Plan every five years, an Action Plan every year, and Citizen Participation Plan every five years as a condition of receiving annual allocations of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds. The draft documents can be found here:
