    Guiding Documents

     We are committed to creating more pathways to housing and resources in a way that promotes equity, sustainability, and resiliency. Our guiding documents analyze where barriers exist and/or propose solutions for how the CDC and the wider community can overcome them. 

    2015 Consolidated Plan

    The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), requires jurisdictions receiving federal funds from Community Development Block GrantHOME Investment Partnerships, and Federal Emergency Solutions Grant programs to develop and submit a Consolidated Plan. The 5-year plan identifies the needs of lower-income persons in the locality and the proposed actions to be taken to serve those needs. For each year during the Consolidated Plan period, the Commission submits an Action Plan outlining the proposed projects to serve lower-income persons in Sonoma County, and a Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) to highlight yearly accomplishments toward Action Plan goals. 

    Funding Policies

    CDC grant and loan recipients must follow the appropriate policies governing the source of funding for their award. 

    Research and Reports

    Commission staff follow best practices for achieving housing and homeless services goals for the County. Below are reports and compilations of studies from both primary data-collection and secondary research that have helped shape some of the practices and policies of the Commission.

    Housing Authority Administrative Plan

    The purpose of the administrative plan is to establish policies for carrying out the programs in a manner consistent with HUD requirements and local goals contained in our agency's plan.
