2015 Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report for the 2017 Program Year Approved by HUD
The Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER) informs Douglas County residents and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) about the accomplishments achieved during the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program year. The CAPER is revised annually to reflect the active projects and CDBG funds spent from August 1, 2017, through July 31, 2018. These reports will continue until all CDBG funds are spent and the grant can be closed out. The CAPER describes how projects and programs available in the county assisted low- and moderate-income residents. During the 2015 program year, Douglas County received an allocation of $889,370 in CDBG funding. In addition to the allocation, $130,638 was reprogrammed from previous program years. To date, 80 percent of the total amount has been spent.
