About the Fairfax County Consolidated Plan
The Five-Year Consolidated Plan and each One-Year Action Plan work together to identify the county’s housing and community development goals, and to provide specific actions to address critical areas of need using federal funds. These plans are developed with input from county leaders, service providers, advocates, community partners, and residents through an extensive engagement effort carried out each year.
The Board of Supervisors is expected to approve the final One-Year Action Plan for FY 2024 in May 2023, to be submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as part of the reporting requirements for HUD-funded programs.
