Welcome to the Consolidated Plan Management Process (CPMP) tool. HUD has created this optional tool to assist formula grantees in meeting the requirements of a Consolidated Plan - a Strategic Plan, up to five Annual Action Plans, and up to five Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Reports (CAPER).
Note that use of the tool is OPTIONAL. Grantees may still submit their Consolidated Plans, Annual Action Plans, and CAPERs in the format they have submitted them in the past. They may also choose to combine parts of the CPMP with formats currently used by grantees. However, where signatures are needed (i.e., SF-424s, certifications), submission of hard copies with original signatures will still be required until a methodology for electronic signatures is implemented.
It is still the responsibility of each grantee to assure compliance with applicable statutes and regulations. The CPMP will facilitate compliance only if all questions (that apply to the grantees) are answered completely and accurately. The CPMP tool, as it is currently designed, is suited more to local jurisdictions than to states. Future versions will be customized for states.
Note: The CPMP tool is a free tool developed by HUD for your use. You should never have to pay for it.
Download the CPMP Tool
This tool is comprised of nineteen (19) different documents - the CPMP main workbook, the Strategic Plan, 5 Annual Action Plans, State and Non-State Certifications, the SF424, CAPERs, the Needs workbook, the Projects workbook, and the new Specific Objectives and Goals workbooks. The tool also contains 7 folders. There are five program year Additional Files folders for you to store optional images or maps in. The new "Ver2.0_DataMigration" folder contains files that help you migrate some of your data from CPMP version 1.3 to this new one. More about this is discussed on the CPMP Version 2.0 Summary page.
You may download the entire tool in one Zip file.
You may use the different tool files individually if you like, but you must download all the pieces of the tool and have them located in the same directory.

NOTE: Some Data migration is available between Version 1.3 and 2.0. Please read through the instructions on the Version 2.0 Summary page before downloading the new version.)
- CPMP Main Workbook
The CPMP main workbook has links on it to Word documents for the Strategic Plan, the Annual Action Plans, and CAPERs along with Excel workbooks for Priority Needs and Projects. In order for the links to work, all of these subsidiary files must be downloaded, as well. All files should be kept in the same directory.
- Strategic Plan
The CPMP Strategic Plan contains all of the components necessary to set forth program goals, specific objectives, annual goals, and benchmarks for measuring progress.
- Annual Action Plans
The CPMP Annual Action Plans include the SF 424, Grantee Certifications, and Narrative Responses to Action Plan questions that CDBG, HOME, HOPWA, and ESG grantees must respond to each year in order to be compliant with the Consolidated Planning Regulations.
HUD Standard Form 424.
- State Certifications
- Non-State Certifications
The CPMP CAPERs include Narrative Responses to CAPER questions that CDBG, HOME, HOPWA, and ESG grantees must respond to each year in order to be compliant with the Consolidated Planning Regulations. The Executive Summary narratives are optional.
- Needs Workbook
The CPMP Needs workbook includes worksheets for Housing Market Analysis, Homeless Needs, Non-homeless Needs, Community Development Needs, Regulatory Barriers, and HOPWA. Use the worksheets to designate the relative priority to be given to each category of needs for the period of time designated in the strategic plan. Buttons on the CPMP main workbook link directly to each of the worksheets.
Note: If you only choose to use an individual worksheet, you may delete the unused worksheets from the workbook.
- Projects Workbook
Use the CPMP Projects workbook to enter information on projects that will be carried out during the program year with grant funds made available for the program year and, if applicable, funds made available from prior year funds. The workbook also contains a worksheet for Section 108. Buttons on the CPMP main workbook link directly to each of the worksheets.
- Summaries Workbook
The new "Summaries.xls" gives you a place to record your annual Specific Objectives and Multi-Year Specific Objectives.
- Goals Workbook
The new "Goals.xls" lets you track your Annual Houising Completion Goals and the Resources used.
- Additional Files Folders
Use the Additional Files folders to house your optional images and maps for each program year. These folders are for your use. If you do not need them, you may go ahead and delete them from the CPMP directory.
Using the CPMP, you may now submit your Consolidated Planning materials almost entirely in electronic format! Please be sure to save all of the different documents to a single folder for simplicity. Several different workbooks and documents are attached to this tool.
Soft Copy Submission by eMail:
A special CPMP mailbox has been created to receive CPMP submissions up to 2 megabytes. If you are including large files like graphical maps, you may have to send multiple eMails to submit the entire CPMP.
Soft Copy Submission by Delivery:
If you have the facilities you may burn the materials to a compact disc (CD) and send that in.
Hard Copy Submission:
As always, you may submit materials in hard copy through the mail or delivery.
Remember: The certifications and SF 424 portion of the Action Plan require signatures and must be mailed to HUD regardless of whether you send a soft copy.
