HUD’s Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD) posted a Memorandum dated May 7 from Acting Assistant Secretary John Gibbs. The Memorandum waives the regulatory requirement that jurisdictions submit a Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) within 90 days of the end of a jurisdiction’s program year.
Existing regulations require jurisdictions receiving funding from Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Home Investment Partnerships (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), and the national Housing Trust Fund (HTF) must complete a CAPER within 90 days of the close of their program year. CPD considers the difficulties attendant to the coronavirus pandemic to provide cause to waive this regulatory requirement for jurisdictions’ FY19 CAPER. However, jurisdictions must submit an FY19 CAPER within 180 days of the close of their program year.
