Note to the reader: HUD now requires all grantees to submit the Consolidated Plan electronically via the IDIS online database system. As such, the printed version of the Knox County Consolidated Plan has been modified to present a more reader-friendly document. The structure and components of this document remain the same as what has been submitted to HUD however the formatting and structure have been optimized for print versions.

Both federal programs ultimately make our community a better place to live and provide a very worthwhile sense of purpose and service for our staff.
