Current Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan
The Consolidated Plan is Louisville Metro’s five-year strategic plan for the use of HUD entitlement funds (HOME, CDBG, ESG, and HOPWA). Additionally, Louisville Metro prepares an annual Action Plan, which outlines specific projects Metro plans to undertake during the year and includes a detailed budget.
The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation (CAPER) was accepted by HUD on November 8, 2017. A detailed response was provided to HUD on December 7, 2017 to provide additional information and clarity requested in the CAPER approval letter. Questions concerning the CAPER can be directed to Melinda L. Breslin at 502-574-8298 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each year Louisville Metro Government prepares a draft Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) and makes it available to the public for review and comment. This report summarizes the activities carried out under four U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) entitlement grant programs from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017. The grant programs are: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA).
