CAPER comments requested

Wednesday, November 1, 2017 by Katy McElroy

Every year, the Neighborhood Housing and Community Development Department receives grant entitlement funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development: Community Development Block Grant, HOME Investment Partnership Program, Emergency Solutions Grant and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS. In return, HUD requires that cities develop a report called the Consolidated Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER), which “assesses the City’s progress and the effectiveness of its performance during FY 2016-17 in the achievement of its overall strategies, objectives, and priorities outlined in the FY 2014-19 Consolidated Plan,” according to a press release from the city of Austin. The draft CAPER will be open for public comment from Nov. 22 to Dec. 7. Check it out on the NHCD website and email comments to, or see the press release for a list of viewing locations and a mailing address for comments.
