The overall goal of the community planning and development programs covered by the consolidated plan is 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 primary means towards this end is to extend and strengthen partnerships among all levels of government and the private sector including for-profit and non-profit organizations, in the production and operation of affordable housing by providing decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanded economic opportunities.
