Keep up to date with the latest Cumberland County Housing and Redevelopment Authorities news.
Completion of the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) is a requirement for Entitlement Community grantees receiving Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program funds and Home Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program funds.
Cumberland County has held the “Urban County” Entitlement Community designation for CDBG and Participating Jurisdiction designation for the HOME Program since Program Year (PY) 2005. As an Entitlement Community, the County receives annual CDBG grants directly from HUD. The County prepared its fourth Five-Year Consolidated Plan (ConPlan) in 2020 that identified priority housing and community development needs and projected a plan to address those needs over the five-year period of 2020 – 2024.
On a yearly basis, Entitlement Communities prepare an Annual Action Plan (AAP) to implement housing and community development activities to address the goals stated in the ConPlan. The 2020 AAP established activities for the year January 1, 2020 – December 31, 2020, and therefore the PY 2020 CAPER reports on the wide range of community activities undertaken during PY 2020, as well as PY 2020 accomplishments.
