SUBJECT:
Title
PUBLIC HEARING ON 2020-2021 CONSOLIDATED ANNUAL PERFORMANCE AND EVALUATION REPORT (CAPER) FOR THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT (CDBG) PROGRAM (CITY COUNCIL)


Body
I. SUMMARY

Each year, prior to the start of the Community Development Block Grant program year, the City submits an Annual Action Plan (AAP), its application to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for CDBG funding. Following the conclusion of that program year, the City is required to submit to HUD a summary report on its performance against that Annual Action Plan. That report, called the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER), is due to HUD not less than 90 days following the close of that program year. HUD regulations require a public hearing on the draft CAPER prior to the submission of the final report. In the past, the CAPER public hearing was conducted by the Citywide Advisory Commission, which has been eliminated, thus this hearing is required to be conducted by the City Council. The purpose of the hearing is to provide the public with a chance to comment on the CAPER. Upon the review and approval of the CAPER by the City Council and consideration of public comments, staff will forward it to HUD.

II. RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation

1. OPEN the Public Hearing, TAKE public testimony, and CLOSE the Public Hearing.
2. APPROVE the final version of the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) and DIRECT staff to submit the CAPER to HUD by the required deadline of September 28, 2021.

Body
III. ALTERNATIVES

TAKE another action that the City Council deems appropriate.
