Consolidated Strategic Housing & Community Development Plan

The City of Concord receives federal grants annually under two programs: The Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) and the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME). Together, these programs invest approximately $1,200,000 a year into the areas’ low- and moderate-income communities in Concord and the counties of Cabarrus, Iredell and Rowan, to provide affordable housing, economic opportunities, and a suitable living environment.

Every five years, the City of Concord prepares a “Consolidated Strategic Housing and Community Development Plan”. The purpose of the plan is to examine the needs and priorities for housing and community development activities for the next five years and establish the strategies to be pursued and performance targets to be achieved through federal CDBG and HOME funded activities. Click here for the 2015-2020 Consolidated Strategic Housing and Community Development Plan.

Affordable Housing Market Study

The City of Concord recently hired a firm to conduct an Affordable Housing Market Study (AHMS) to analyze the critical housing needs for the next 10 years.  This AHMS provides a long-range strategy for addressing the trends that are impacting the housing market and  identifying the shortcomings and barriers to securing quality housing that is affordable to its citizens based on the current and projected populations.  The AHMS highlights expected future demands for housing and it provides an inventory of the assets and programs that are available to help the City to address these challenges.  The AHMS also provides recommendations for meeting the housing needs despite the existing conditions, obstacles and opportunities that are prevalent within the City’s affordable housing market.  Please take a moment to review this all-important Study that will affect the City’s housing decisions the for many years to come by clicking on the report cover below.

Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice

The Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice Report was prepared to satisfy the requirements of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974.  The Report must be completed every five (5) years by Grantees that receive federal funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  The Report requires communities to analyze a series of fair housing issues and identify any impediments to fair housing choice.  This report includes an analysis of various demographic, economic and housing indicators that were identified by citizens that reside within the eight (8) jurisdictions that make up the tri-county area of the Cabarrus/Iredell/Rowan HOME Consortium.  This Report outlines the impediments to fair housing choice and recommends steps to address and overcome the impacts of the identified impediments and the Report can be accessed by clicking on the report cover below.
