In preparation for Program Year (PY) 41 planning, the Los Angeles Housing + Community Investment Department hosted four community forums in September 2014. The purpose was to engage the community and get participation in the development of the City's upcoming Consolidated Action Plan (Con Plan). The new Program Year will be for April 2015 - March 2016.

Community meetings will be held in January-February 2015 to gather comments on the Mayor's draft Action Plan, anticipated for release in early January.
As the City’s first 2013-2017 Transit-Oriented Consolidated Plan (ConPlan), the ConPlan maximizes the region’s unprecedented investments in transit by integrating and leveraging transit, community, economic, and housing investments to transform low-income neighborhoods and build communities of opportunities.
For the first time, the City expanded its analysis beyond HUD-funded projects and mapped the City’s transit, housing, public services, community amenities, and need indicators – which demonstrated a clear intersection of transit investment and where extremely-low to low-income median households exist in Los Angeles.
The ConPlan is the City of Los Angeles’ strategic plan for leveraging the annual allocations of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) grants to develop viable urban communities by:
- Providing decent housing and a suitable living environment; and
- Expanding economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons.
The ConPlan was developed using the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s new eCon Planning Suite, which includes a new mandatory web-based template, expanded planning database, and online data mapping tool. The result was a more collaborative, data-driven, and place-based planning process that included increased opportunities for public participation and consultation.
