The City of Springfield is required to develop and publish the CAPER on a yearly basis to report how the federal funds from the Community Development Block Grant and HOME programs were used to address the goals and strategies of its Consolidated Plan for its past program year (July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019).
CAPERS are required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and provide a yearly accounting of Community Development Block Grant and other federal funds allocated toward projects outlined in the City’s five-year Consolidated Plan. Grantees report on accomplishments and progress toward Consolidated Plan goals.
