Homeless Services Strategy
In an ongoing effort to balance the unique needs of those experiencing homelessness and the needs of the community, Salt Lake City worked with internal and external partners to develop a Homeless Services 6-Point Strategy. 
This document is designed to guide the city’s efforts and enhance community collaboration as we work toward six major goals over the next 18 months. The six goals include efforts such as:
  • Housing
  • Services for homeless individuals
  • Public safety 
  • Community activities

The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER)
The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) is an annual report required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  Each jurisdiction receiving Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships Program, Housing Opportunities for Persons with Aids (HOPWA), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funds must review the progress it has made in carrying out its Consolidated Plan and report on that progress.

The CAPER must contain: 1) a summary of resources and programmatic accomplishments;  2) the status of actions taken during the year to implement the overall strategy; and  3) a self-evaluation of progress made during the past year in addressing identified priority needs and objectives.
