The overall goal of the Consolidated Plan is to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment and expanding economic opportunities principally for very low and low income persons. This is to be developed in cooperation with the public, government, private, and non profit sectors. The end result strengthened partnerships among all levels.
The Consolidated Plan combines four entitlement programs into one submission to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. The City of Paterson's allocation for fiscal year 1995 totals $6,584,000. This allocation is separated into the following programs:
|Emergency Shelter Grant Program (ESG)||$151,000|
|HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME)||$1,371,000|
|Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA)||$1,268,000|
|Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)||$3,794,000|
The Consolidated Plan was prepared by the Division of Housing, in
consultation with the public. Input was solicited from governmental agencies,
private sector, and non profit agencies who provide housing, community, and
social services to the residents of Paterson.
The Consolidated Plan serves the following functions:
An application for federal funds.
A strategy to be followed while carrying out HUD's programs.
An action plan in which to evaluate progress.
The Division of Housing has summarized the plan by strategies, goals, and activities. The consolidated housing plan consists of three major sections. The first section discusses the needs of the population of Paterson. Specifically it discusses the general needs of the population, the needs of the homeless population and the needs of other groups of the population. This section is made up of primarily demographic and statistical data. The second section of the Consolidated Plan is the Strategic plan. This section discusses the long term goals of the city.
