Key Plans and Reports


 Annual Action Plan

​Each year, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires that the City of Virginia Beach submit an Annual Action Plan (AAP). The plan outlines how the city will use and allocate funding under the following federal entitlement grants: 
  • Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program
  • HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME)
  • Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Program
  • Housing Opportunities for People with AIDS  (HOPWA) Program: The HOPWA program provides funds for the Virginia Beach-Norfolk-Newport News, VA-NC Metro Area.

These funds have been used to support programs to address various affordable housing needs in the city, including addressing homelessness, creating affordable housing opportunities and providing home rehabilitation grants and loans for low- to moderate-income​ homeowners.

 Consolidated Strategy and Plan

​The Annual Action Plan (AAP) is based on the city’s approved FY 2015-2020 Five-Year Consolidated Strategy and Plan​. The Consolidated Strategy and Plan describes the city’s housing and community development needs, priorities, resources and strategies. ​

​Draft 2020-2025 Consolidated Strategy and Plan Process

​​​Virginia Beach Housing & Neighborhood Preservation (VBHNP) is beginning the process of updating its Consolidated Strategy and Plan (CSP) for 2020-2025. The plan develops the priorities over a five-year period for the following federal entitlement grants: Community Development Block Grant, HOME Investment Partnerships Program, Emergency Solutions Grant, and the Housing Opportunities for People with AIDS Program. It also provides a summary of the city's housing and community development needs, resources and strategies.

The first steps in the CSP process is ​updating the Citizen Participation Plan, which will guide the engagement process for developing the CSP and all federal entitlement grants, and condu​cting a needs assessment to help identify critical housing and neighborhood preservation issues citizens believe should be addressed in the city.  VBHNP is requesting public input on the draft Citizen Par​ticipation Plan​ and the types of questions the department should consider for the Needs Assessment Survey.

Comments on the draft Citizen Participation Plan and draft Needs Assessment Survey should be submitted by Nov. 12, 2019, via the following ways:
