Public Invited to Upcoming CAPER Meetings
The City of Visalia will submit its Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) for Program Year 2016 (July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017) to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), no later than September 30, 2017 and we're seeking community input.
The CAPER is an annual report that describes the performance in meeting its goal with the use of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnerships Grant (HOME) received from HUD.
The City uses these grants to provide decent, clean, safe and affordable housing, create a suitable living environment, and expand economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate income.
HOME funds were used toward the 36-unit multifamily new construction project, scattered site acquisition/rehab of existing ownership properties through the City’s certified Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO), and tenant-based rental assistance.
The CDBG program funds were used toward Oval public and park improvements, ADA compliance, public services, code enforcement, fair housing, voucher program- case management, Senior Mobile Home Repair, and economic development, specifically repayment of the Section 108 loan.
