Connect with Bowie
Since 2003, the City of Bowie has been designated as an Entitlement Community, which allows the City to receive direct funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under its Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. The Office of Grant Development & Administration (OGDA) manages this program and uses the funds for projects throughout the City including street and infrastructure improvements in Old Town Bowie and housing upgrades and energy efficiency enhancements for senior citizen residences throughout the City.

Consolidated Plan for Community Development (ConPlan)
Under the Community Development Block Grant program, the City develops a strategic plan every five years that identifies community needs and proposed solutions in the areas of housing, special needs, economic development, and non-housing community development. This plan is called the Consolidated Plan for Community Development or ConPlan. View the current ConPlan here.

Annual Action Plan
The Five Year Strategic Plan in the Consolidated Plan for Community Development includes a detailed breakout of proposed activities for each year, which is called the Annual Action Plan (AAP).  The draft Annual Action Plan, FY 2016 is available for review and public comment from April 23, 2015 to May 8, 2015.  Browse through past Annual Action Plans.

Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Reports (CAPER)
Each year the City submits a CAPER to HUD reporting on outcomes of the goals and objectives identified in the Annual Action Plan.  It also evaluates the overall implementation process of the Five-Year Plan and annual goals  defined in the Consolidated Five Year Strategic Plan (ConPlan).  View current and past CAPERS here.

Senior Citizen "Green" Housing Rehabilitation Program
