Modernizing HUD’s Consolidated Planning Process to Narrow the Digital Divide and Increase Resilience to Natural Hazards

December 16, 2016

This final rule updates the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD's) Consolidated Plan planning process to require states and local governments to consider two additional concepts: 1) the availability of broadband access, and 2) the vulnerability of housing occupied by low- and moderate-income households to natural hazards risks, many of which may be increasing due to climate change. Consolidated Plans are used by state and local governments receiving HUD funds to assess their affordable housing and community development needs, so that they may make place-based investment decisions.
