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.

The Draft CAPER will also be available for public review between Friday, August 29, and Friday, September 12, 2014 at Salt Lake City Corporation, 451 South State Street, Salt Lake City, Utah, in the offices of Housing & Neighborhood Development, Room 406 and the Mayor’s Office in Room 306, as well as the Salt Lake City Public Library, 210 East 400 South Street, or to review electronically CLICK HERE.
