Title

Public Hearing on the 2016 Community Development Block Grant Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report.

 

Body

BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:

The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) is an annual report required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  The report for Program Year (PY) 2016 identifies the level of progress and accomplishments during the past program year in meeting the priorities, goals and objectives of the Consolidated Plan prepared in 2015.  The Consolidated Plan is a five-year strategic planning document, and this CAPER completes the 2016 program year of the 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan.

 

To receive HUD entitlement funds, the City annually submits a one-year Action Plan, including proposed projects and federal certifications.  The Action Plan is developed in accordance with the City’s Citizen Participation Plan.  After submission, projects are implemented in accordance with the approved one-year budget and certifications.  The CAPER is submitted to HUD after a fifteen-day review period.

 

The CAPER also reflects information regarding expenditures.  For program year 2016, $379,104 in housing and community development funding was received from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program.

 

A public hearing on the CAPER is required by HUD before submission.  The full draft report is available for review at the City Secretary’s Office during the fifteen-day comment period beginning November 22, 2017. The final CAPER will be delivered to HUD no later than December 30, 2017.  It is due to HUD no later than 90 days after the close of the program year (September 30, 2017).
