The Maine 2017 Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) is available on the MaineHousing website.
The Maine State Housing Authority (MaineHousing) and the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) drafted the Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER) for the Consolidated Housing and Community Development Plan (Consolidated Plan) program year 2017 (ending December 31, 2017).
The Consolidated Plan was developed by MaineHousing and DECD in 2014 to address low and moderate income housing needs in Maine and community development needs in the non-urbanized areas of Maine through 2019. The Consolidated Plan outlines the use of HUD funds for the following programs administered in the state:
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
- HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME)
- Emergency Solutions Grant Program (ESG)
- Housing Trust Fund (HTF)
These programs receive approximately $18 million in annual allocations.
The CAPER describes progress implementing the Consolidated Plan and summarizes program delivery, populations served and the amount of matching funds, where applicable.
MaineHousing and DECD will hold a public hearing to gather comments on the draft CAPER on March 21 at 9:30 am at the Maine State Housing Authority (353 Water Street, Augusta). The deadline for written comments is 5pm on March 23, 2018.
If you would like a copy of the report, would like to request a reasonable accommodation, or make a HOME, HTF or ESG related comment, please direct your communication to Paula Weber at MaineHousing .
Please direct all CDBG related comments to Deborah Johnson at Maine Office of Community Development.
