[Saturday, April 14, 2012]

The Department of Community and Economic Development (Department) is preparing its 2011 Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) on the progress and accomplishments made during 2011 in implementing the Commonwealth's Consolidated Plan for Federal Fiscal Years 2009-2013. This document must be submitted to, and approved by, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the Commonwealth and organizations within this Commonwealth to receive funding under most HUD housing and community development programs. The Consolidated Plan creates a unified strategy for housing and community development programs, as well as the necessary linkages for building successful neighborhoods and communities.
 The Commonwealth has allocated funds under several programs, namely the Community Development Block Grant, HOME Investment Partnerships Program, Emergency Shelter Grant Program and Housing Opportunities for People with AIDS Program. Additionally, this CAPER will detail funding from 2009 under both the Housing and Economic Recovery Act and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The CAPER discusses accomplishments in relation to goals and objectives identified in the Action Plan of the Consolidated Plan.
 The CAPER assesses the goals and objectives of this strategic plan; discusses how the Commonwealth is affirmatively furthering fair and affordable housing; reviews the activities of the Continuums of Care; and appraises how well resources in community development and housing are being leveraged.
