For the past 50 years, Norwalk has received Community Development Block Grant funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The grant is managed by the Norwalk Redevelopment Agency. To receive funds, the City is required to undergo a comprehensive planning process every five years, which includes a Five-Year Consolidated Plan, as well as an update to the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing, and Citizen Participation Plan for all HUD related programs and plans.

The Consolidated Plan for the next five years, 2020 – 2025, will assess the housing and community development needs for Norwalk, and provide a comprehensive five-year strategy to:

  • Increase and maintain the supply of affordable and supportive housing for low-income and special needs populations, including the homeless
  • Create a suitable living environment through neighborhood revitalization and improvements in public facilities and services
  • Expand economic opportunities for lower income households
