CPMP Release Notes
Welcome to the Consolidated Plan Management Process (CPMP) tool. HUD has created this optional tool to assist formula grantees in meeting the requirements of a Consolidated Plan - a Strategic Plan, up to five Annual Action Plans, and up to five Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Reports (CAPER).
Note that use of the tool is OPTIONAL. Grantees may still submit their Consolidated Plans, Annual Action Plans, and CAPERs in the format they have submitted them in the past. They may also choose to combine parts of the CPMP with formats currently used by grantees. However, where signatures are needed (i.e., SF-424s, certifications), submission of hard copies with original signatures will still be required until a methodology for electronic signatures is implemented.
It is still the responsibility of each grantee to assure compliance with applicable statutes and regulations. The CPMP will facilitate compliance only if all questions (that apply to the grantees) are answered completely and accurately. The CPMP tool, as it is currently designed, is suited more to local jurisdictions than to states. Future versions will be customized for states.
Note: The CPMP tool is a free tool developed by HUD for your use. You should never have to pay for it.
This tool is comprised of nineteen (19) different documents - the CPMP main workbook, the Strategic Plan, 5 Annual Action Plans, State and Non-State Certifications, the SF424, CAPERs, the Needs workbook, the Projects workbook, and the new Specific Objectives and Goals workbooks. The tool also contains 7 folders. There are five program year Additional Files folders for you to store optional images or maps in. The new "Ver2.0_DataMigration" folder contains files that help you migrate some of your data from CPMP version 1.3 to this new one. More about this is discussed on the CPMP Version 2.0 Summary page.
You may download the entire tool in one Zip file. You may use the different tool files individually if you like, but you must download all the pieces of the tool and have them located in the same directory.

NOTE: Some Data migration is available between Version 1.3 and 2.0. Please read through the instructions on the Version 2.0 Summary page before downloading the new version.)
Using the CPMP, you may now submit your Consolidated Planning materials almost entirely in electronic format! Please be sure to save all of the different documents to a single folder for simplicity. Several different workbooks and documents are attached to this tool.
|Soft Copy Submission by eMail:||A special CPMP mailbox (firstname.lastname@example.org) has been created to receive CPMP submissions up to 2 megabytes. If you are including large files like graphical maps, you may have to send multiple eMails to submit the entire CPMP.|
|Soft Copy Submission by Delivery:||If you have the facilities you may burn the materials to a compact disc (CD) and send that in.|
|Hard Copy Submission:||As always, you may submit materials in hard copy through the mail or delivery.|
Remember: The certifications and SF 424 portion of the Action Plan require signatures and must be mailed to HUD regardless of whether you send a soft copy.
