Entitlement Communities are cities or urban communities with a population of 50,000 or more which, because of their size, receive Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) funds directly from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
A consortium consists of adjacent units of general local governments that come together to qualify for a direct allocation of HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Broward County HOME Consortium is a legal entity created through an Intergovernmental agreement between Broward County and 11 HOME Consortium Cities; Coconut Creek, Coral Springs, Town of Davie, Deerfield Beach, Lauderhill, Margate, Miramar, Pembroke Pines, Plantation, Sunrise, and Tamarac. Broward County Housing Finance and Community Development Division (HFCD) is the lead agency of the HOME Consortium and they administer the contract with HUD for the HOME funds. The HOME funds are used to increase the supply of, and preserve, affordable housing within Broward County. The individual cities and County determine their own priorities based on different needs that exist in the diverse jurisdictions.
The Consolidated Plan (CP) is a five-year strategic plan that sets out a collaborative vision for community development in Broward County, based on an analysis of the local housing market and needs of the area residents. In addition to the Consolidated Plan, Broward County, the HOME Consortium, and the Entitlement Communities must also publish Annual Action Plans (AAP). The AAPs describe how CDBG, HOME and other HUD housing and community development funds will be used in the following fiscal year to carry out the strategies outlined in the Consolidated Plan.
