The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) is a comprehensive evaluation of the County’s use of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) entitlement funding. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is the funding entity of these federal programs. The CAPER contains a summary of accomplishments achieved in response to objectives set forth by the County’s Five-Year Consolidated Plan and Strategy. For reporting purposes, the CAPER focuses on those activities outlined in the County’s 2017 One-Year Action Plan and expenditures realized during that time period.
The CAPER is comprised of three basic elements: 1) current activities in IDIS and DRGR which include all required financial and performance data used for annual reporting, 2) required narrative discussions on certain HUD identified topics and 3) required IDIS and DRGR reports. Wherever possible, tables and graphs were used to interpret performance and expenditure data in order to facilitate an ease of understanding. In summary, the County’s 2017 CAPER has been prepared in accordance with the performance reporting requirements set forth in 24 CFR Part 91.
