Consolidated Plan

Every five years, the State of Maine redevelops a Consolidated Housing and Community Development Plan (Consolidated Plan), as mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These five-year plans review the housing landscape in Maine and set forth the state’s goals and strategies for administering several federally-funded programs to support communities throughout the state. One component of the Consolidated Plan summarizes obstacles to equal housing opportunities across Maine. This section, the Analysis of Impediments, created from data and research, fulfills a federal obligation to affirmatively further fair housing under the Fair Housing Act. 

Public input is instrumental to the planning process. MaineHousing and the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development have created a multi-phase process as follows:

  • June 1 - August 10, 2024 -  Listening Tour  (surveys, listening sessions, and a public hearing)
  • August 11 - October 12, 2024 - Drafting Stage ( incorporate data and feedback into draft Consolidated Plan and draft Analysis of Impediments)
  • October 15 - November 15, 2024 - Public Comment Stage (public hearing and comment on finished draft)

More details about the process and events for the 2025-2029 Consolidated Plan can be found below.
