9 Consortia Applications Single Integrated Program Application must reflect an overall consortium program design NOT a collection of disparate programs Must propose a single program including: Proposed activities and timeline Continued affordability standards Community outreach Performance and monitoring Leveraging funds Green building and rehab standards
