CAPER stands for Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report. HUD requires every grantee to submit to HUD a CAPER within 90 days after the end of each program year. For the City of Lee's Summit, the program year ends on June 30th, thus CAPER from the City of Lee's Summit is due to HUD on September 28th. It is a report on progress made in implementing the community’s Consolidated Plan for the Community Development Block Grant program, through the proposed actions identified in the one-year Action Plan. HUD has standardized CAPER by providing an online form where grantees are required to describe accomplishments to specific program requirement and need to be met.
The City, as the Grantee of the CDBG program, is required to engage the general public in the development and review of the CAPER before it is finalized and submitted to HUD for approval. The City has an established process for citizen participation, which includes a public notice in the local newspaper of the greatest circulation, a public hearing to solicit public input, and a 15-day public review and comment period prior to submittal of CAPER to HUD. Below are the most recent CAPERS and earlier CAPERS are available upon request.
