The Consolidated Plan describes Seattle’s housing and community development needs, particularly those of low-income residents, and outlines strategies to address those needs over the next four years. Certain elements of the plan, including the housing policies and annual allocation plans are updated annually.

The full Consolidated Plan, the Consolidated Plan Housing Element, and information regarding certifications of consistency with Consolidated Plan policies needed for housing proposals can be found using the following links.

The federal Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in the sale or rental of housing, the financing of housing or the provision of brokerage services against any person on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, handicap or familial status. Furthermore, the Act requires that each grantee of CDBG funds certify to the secretary of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) that it is affirmatively furthering fair housing. One requirement of the certification is a fair housing analysis, the full text of which is available below.
