In some communities, priorities and goals barely change from one plan to the next. Not so in Atlanta. Atlanta’s 2020 Consolidated Plan arrived at a time of transition for the City. A new leadership structure unifying management of the City’s HUD-funded programs under one office had to be reflected as well as significant changes to the City’s sizable HOPWA program necessitated by a 60% funding cut anticipated over the five year planning period. Not to mention an overhaul of the Citizen Participation Plan and the system for organizing the Plan’s priorities and goals. In this dynamic environment, Mosaic emphasized a broad-based and transparent community engagement process to build public trust in the new plan and maintained close communication with the City’s principals to head off challenges and keep the project’s momentum moving forward to completion.

Concurrent with Atlanta’s Consolidated Plan project, Mosaic led the development of a Regional Analysis of Impediments for the City and for Fulton and DeKalb Counties, all individual entitlement communities. A careful stakeholder identification process ensured that regional voices were at the table along with unique perspectives from varied suburban and small-town communities outside Atlanta. Mosaic’s deft and proactive project management kept the project moving forward despite differing, and sometimes conflicting, timetables set by the individual clients.
