While the Annual Action Plan is primarily tasked with looking forward, the CAPER is primarily tasked with looking back. The CAPER is a HUD-required report that looks back over the past program year and systematically accounts for:
All expenditures including dollars spent on specific projects
The number of people or households benefited by each project
The extent to which goals set forth in the Annual Action Plans were met
HUD 5-Year Consolidated Plan
The 5-Year Consolidated Plan is a comprehensive plan required by HUD. The plan is intended to identify needs within our communities and establish priorities for meeting those needs over a 5-year period. Much of the content in the "Con Plan" is prescribed by HUD.
