Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER)
The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) is a summary of the activities and accomplishments toward the goals/objectives outlined in the City's Consolidated Plan. The Community Reinvestment Department prepares the CAPER report each year which includes detailed information on the activities funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) formula grant programs: CDBG and HOME.
The CAPER also assesses the progress made in meeting community development, housing, and homeless needs in the Community. The City of Columbus utilizes the CAPER report to measure its accomplishments and progress toward the specific goals outlined by the Consolidated Plan. The CAPER's findings determine what projects need to be modified or removed.
