This page presents publications produced by the Neighborhood Housing and Community Development Office and federally required reports including the Consolidated Plans, Action Plans, and Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Reports (CAPERs).
The following reports are required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Austin City Council designates the Neighborhood Housing and Community Development Office (NHCD) as the single point of contact with HUD and lead agency for the grant administration of the entitlement funds received from HUD, including the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships, Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), and the Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG). For consistency in reporting, the City of Austin reflects all local and federal funding in these HUD reports.
The Consolidated Plan is the City of Austin's five-year plan to address the community's most critical housing and community development needs. The goals and strategies outlined in each Consolidated Plan are the result of an extensive public process. The 2005-09 Plan allocates more than $63 million in federal, state and local resources, which is estimated to assist more than 40,000 Austin households with affordable housing, small business development.
Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER)
At the end of the fiscal year, the City must prepare a Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) to provide information to HUD and citizens about that year's accomplishments. This information allows HUD, City officials and the public to evaluate the City's performance and determine whether the activities undertaken during the fiscal year helped to meet the City's five-year goals and to address priority needs identified in the Consolidated Plan and the Annual Action Plan.
