Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plans
Gwinnett County prepares a new Consolidated Plan every five years that identifies housing, community development, and homeless problems and needs. The plan also establishes measurable goals, priority objectives and strategies to address these identified needs, and contains the County’s proposed investments of HUD Entitlement Grant funds – and other resources – to address the problem/needs. Funding awarded to Gwinnett County by HUD through Annual Action Plans is used to carry out the activities needed to meet the annual goals, objectives, and performance measures proposed in the Consolidated Plan. The current five-year Consolidated Plan and the most recent Annual Action Plans are available for download.
