Planning & Development Reports Page

The Consolidated Plan is designed to help a participating jurisdiction (PJ) like the City of Parkersburg to assess its affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions, and to make data-driven, place-based investment decisions. The consolidated planning process serves as the framework for a community-wide dialogue to identify housing and community development priorities that align and focus funding from Housing and Urban Development block grant programs like Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program and HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) Program.

The City of Parkersburg is committed to providing the citizens of the City with the opportunity to comment and make suggestions on the utilization of Community Development Block Grant and HOME Investment Partnership funds, to the greatest extent feasible. It is our position that funds can only go toward the areas of greatest need if those whom will benefit have input on their expenditure.

In order to obtain the views of citizens, public agencies, and other interested parties, the City generally places its proposed Annual Action Plan on public display in the City Development Department during normal business hours for the length specified in the notice.

The City of Parkersburg is a CDBG Entitlement Community. Wood County is a HOME Participating Jurisdiction. As such, the City receives funds directly from HUD. These programs are funded by formula grants from HUD, and as such, The City is required to prepare a five-year Consolidated Plan “ConPlan”.

The ConPlan regulations (24 CFR 91) require each state and local government submit a certification that it is affirmatively furthering Fair Housing. This means it will: 1) conduct an analysis of impediments to Fair Housing choice; 2) take appropriate actions to overcome the effects of impediments identified through that analysis, and 3) maintain records reflecting the analysis and actions. Furthermore, HUD is committed to eliminating racial and ethnic segregation, illegal physical and other barriers to persons with disabilities and other discriminatory practices in housing.
