Program Year 2015 to October 1, 2015 Through September 30, 2016
The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program utilizes funds received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide programs and services that benefit the City's low to moderate income citizens. The City is an entitlement community for the CDBG grant, meaning it receives an annual allocation of CDBG funds - Typically around $500,000 per year.
Early in each calendar year, the City begins the process of determining how the next year's funds will be spent. After Council allocates the funds to various programs and projects, a report called the Annual Action Plan is prepared. The Action Plan is the City's application to HUD for approval of our anticipated programs and projects. The Action Plan establishes goals and objectives for each program or project.
The City's 2015 program year began October 1, 2015 and ended September 30, 2016. After the close of the program year, the City prepares an annual report of its progress in achieving the goals and objectives contained in the Action Plan. This report, known as the Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER) is available for review:
