RE: Program Year 2019 CAPER (July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020)
Each year Louisville Metro Government prepares a Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). This report summarizes the activities carried out under four U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) entitlement grant programs from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020. These grant programs are: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA).
Please note, this Annual Performance Report contains the final accomplishment summaries only from regular Metro programming scheduled during the program year. Although these programs were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic between March 2020 and June 2020, this report does not include accomplishment details of COVID-19 specific response programs. As these programs are ongoing, those accomplishments will be included in a later report.

There will be a 15-day public comment period on this draft report, beginning January 6, 2021. Comments must be received no later than January 21, 2021, and may be submitted via US mail or email to:
