View FY 2018-19 CAPER Summary

Title I of the National Affordable Housing Act of 1990 requires jurisdictions that receive Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) and/or Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funding to assess the activities implemented during its previous program year through a Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER). The CAPER details how the City carried out the projects and activities identified in the previously approved Fiscal Year 2018-19 Action Plan. The CAPER provides narrative descriptions and financial information on specific activities, and evaluates the City’s progress toward the priority objectives addressing housing and community needs as outlined in the 5-Year Consolidated Plan.
