2018-2022 Consolidated Plan Update Process

The City of Bellingham is in the process of updating its Consolidated Plan and Fair Housing Assessment as required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The new plan will provide a 5-year roadmap for Bellingham's community development and housing needs. Everyone in Bellingham is impacted by issues related to housing and poverty. Whether you yourself struggle to find affordable housing, know someone who has faced discrimination in housing, or witness the effects of unstable or no housing for those with little means and/or disabled, we all know these issues shape our community. Help us create a future that addresses the real needs and issues by staying engaged and providing your input.

The Community Participation Plan will help to guide these processes. Please contact Heather Aven at haven@cob.org if you are interested in being added to the Consolidated Plan update email distribution list.

Consolidated Plan Update

We have just launched a new survey, this one specifically focused on setting our priorities for the 5-year Consolidated Plan. Please take the survey and let us know what services, development and housing needs are most critical from your perspective. Pass it on to help us get even more community input.

Below are the fact sheets that depict recent data on a series of topics to help inform the process.

Language assistance is available upon request. Please contact Kate Bartholomew at kebartholomew@cob.org or 360-778-8353 if you need documents in another language or translation services to participate in public events.
