The City is reaching out to interested individuals to share information about the citizen engagement process for the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). The CAPER serves to meet the performance reporting requirements of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as set forth with the Consolidated Plan Regulations. The performance report, due to HUD 90 days after the close of the City’s program year on June 30, is due by September 29th of each year. The draft report describes activities undertaken by the City of Fresno during the Program Year (PY) 2017, beginning July 1, 2017 and ending June 30, 2018, using the following federal funds:
- Community Development Block Grant (CDBG),
- Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG),
- Home Investment Partnership (HOME), and
- Housing Opportunities for Persons With HIV/AIDS (HOPWA).
These limited resources assist with funding community development efforts to improve housing, economic, and social conditions and opportunities for low-income and moderate-income residents of Fresno. The City funded and administered projects to address the four main goals of the 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan. The City also supported its goals and strategies through administrative actions, including providing support to neighborhood groups and non-profits, planning and coordination of local resources and with other organizations such as the continuum of care, and through certifications of consistency.
Beginning August 31, 2018, a Public Review Draft of the report will be made available for a fifteen day review period. The Draft Public Review Program Year 2017 CAPER is available at Fresno City Hall, 2600 Fresno Street, Room 2133 (City Clerk’s Office) and Room 3070 (Housing Division); as well as at the Downtown Branch of the Fresno County Public Library and online at www.fresno.gov/housing under the Plans and Reports tab.
