In order for the City of Tulsa to receive certain community development, housing and homeless services funding, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires a Three or Five-Year Consolidated Plan. This Plan serves as the planning guide for entitlements funded under the Community Planning and Development (CPD) formula to include the following grant programs:
Tulsa receives funds from HUD to carry out activities that will primarily benefit low- and moderate-income households. The intent of the Consolidated Plan is to provide the community with a blueprint for effectively spending these federal grant funds. It integrates economic, physical, environmental, community, and human development in a comprehensive and coordinated fashion.
The Annual Action Plan describes the specific projects and activities that the City of Tulsa will undertake in the coming year to address identified needs and priorities.
The CAPER is an evaluation and performance report required by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). At the end of each fiscal year, the CAPER details the City of Tulsa's accomplishments toward meeting the goals outlined in its Consolidated Plan. The CAPER compares the actual performance measures with the performance measures listed in the Action Plan, which is developed before the fiscal year. The CAPER reports on activities funded by the federal HOME Investment Partnership (HOME), Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) programs.
The intent of the Citizen Participation Plan is to provide clear guidelines that citizens may follow in order to play a role in the community development planning process
The 2010 Comprehensive Housing Market Analysis is a tool to help the City evaluate and identify housing needs in the City of Tulsa.
