The Maine State Housing Authority (MaineHousing) and the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) are drafting the Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER) for the Consolidated Housing and Community Development Plan (Consolidated Plan) program year 2016 (ending December 31, 2016).
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)
These programs receive approximately $15 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.
The draft CAPER will be available on the MaineHousing Website and http://www.maine.gov/decd on March 6, 2017.
MaineHousing and DECD will hold a public hearing to gather comments on the draft CAPER on March 9 at 11:00 am at the Maine State Housing Authority (353 Water Street, Augusta). The deadline for written comments is 5pm on March 24, 2017.
