Matters Overseen by Nashua’s Urban Programs Department
The City of Nashua is an entitlement community. Meaning we receive Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) each year. These funds are based on a formula and announced each year by HUD. In order to receive these funds, the City of Nashua must prepare a "Consolidated Plan" for approval by HUD at least every five years and an Annual Action Plan for each of those five years.
The Consolidated Plan is a five-year strategic plan that provides a course of action for building livable communities throughout the City. The Plan describes the City’s goals and objectives to address priority needs related to affordable housing, homelessness, non-homeless special needs populations and community development, which includes economic development, revitalization, community infrastructure, and public services.
