The Consolidated Plan
The Consolidated Plan, here after referred to as “the Plan”, is the five-year housing and community development planning document for the State of South Dakota. The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Solutions Grants Program (ESG) and HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) are US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s funded formula programs covered under the Plan. The overall goals of community development and planning programs covered in the Plan are to develop viable communities by providing decent affordable housing and a suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities primarily for low- and moderate-income persons. The primary means toward this end is to extend and strengthen partnerships among all levels of government and the private sector, including for-profit and non-profit organizations in the production and operation of affordable housing and economic development. For the State of South Dakota, South Dakota Housing Development Authority (SDHDA) administers the HOME and ESG programs and the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) administers the CDBG Program.
