Housing and Community Development Open House

Salt Lake City’s Housing and Neighborhood Development Division is hosting an open house at the Sorenson Unity Center to showcase this year’s applicants for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) programs.

Residents are invited to participate in the Open House and learn about different programs in the community. Representatives from organizations that applied for these grants will be in attendance to answer questions about their programs and the services they provide.

Individuals will have an opportunity to vote for the programs they believe should be prioritized for funding and these votes will be passed on to the Community Development and Capital Improvement Program (CDCIP) advisory board, the Mayor and City Council to inform them of public will regarding CDBG and ESG funds.

Open House details are as follows:

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.
