Question

What is the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER)?

Answer

The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires every grantee to submit a CAPER within 90 days after the end of each program year.  The CAPER is a report on progress made in implementing the community's Consolidated Plan, through the proposed actions identified in the one-year Action Plan.

HUD requires the CAPER to include three key parts:
1) Narrative of accomplishments in relation to goals and objectives identified in the one-year Action Plan,
2) Statistical and Financial information about individual activities undertaken during the program year, and
3) Information on expenditures, caps and program income.

The primary goal of the CAPER is for the Grantee, as well as HUD, to evaluate performance against the established goals and objectives.
