Posted 8/21/17: Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) for Program Year 2016

The City has been challenged in past years in achieving full conformance with HUD regulations regarding timely spending of CDBG funds.  Active steps were taken in Program Year 2016 (PY2016) to address this problem and spend down the buildup of unspent entitlement funding and program income.  Specific activities and spending plans were developed and implemented to spend down the fund buildup and meet spending goals established in the Program Year 2015 (PY2015) Action Plan and Program Year 2014 (PY2014) Substantial Amendment, while remaining aligned with the 2015-2019 Consolidated and Strategic Plans.  In 2016 the City successfully completed the workout plan and met timely spending goals.
