A Consolidated Plan is a document HUD requires each entitlement agency to prepare in order to receive HUD’s grant money. A typical Consolidated Plan is normally a 3-year or 5-year plan that identifies local needs in housing and community development and establishes local goals to accomplish by utilizing HUD’s grant funds. The Consolidated Plan should also identify programs to be carried out and resources to be used as implementation strategies.
The City Council adopted by ordinance the 2015-19 Consolidated Plan on May 21, 2015, along with the 2015-16 Annual Action Plan and the amended Citizen Participation Plan, pending HUD final approval. These plans are provided below for public access. The previous Consolidated plan and subsequent amendments are also provided as reference.

Public Notice - Public Hearing and Public Comment Period
Lee's Summit, Missouri was designated as an Entitlement Community under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Grant funds must be used to meet the needs of low-to-moderate income persons (minimum of 70% of total grant) or to address slums or blight in Lee’s Summit.
On July 16, 2015, HUD published a Final Rule at 24 CFR Part 5 regarding a grantee’s obligation to Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH), effective August 17, 2015. The new rule sets forth a meaningful and transparent process to identify and understand local and regional fair housing issues and to set goals for improving fair housing choice and access to opportunity. The new rule also requires grantees to conduct an Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) as a part of the required Consolidated Plan submission. Under the new rule, the Citizen Participation Plan requirements at 24 CFR 91.105 for local governments have been revised to accommodate the new AFH. To comply with 91.105, a grantee’s Citizen Participation Plan needs to be amended prior to the initiation of the AFH process. The City of Lee’s Summit has drafted an amendment to the City’s current Citizen Participation Plan to comply with 24 CFR 91.105. The amendment lays out the City’s policies and standard processes and procedures to encourage citizen participation in conducting an AFH.
