Annual Action Plan

The Annual Action Plan describes how Lexington County will use its allocation of Community
Development Block Grant Program funds and HOME Investment Partnerships Program funds in our
communities. The Action Plan identifies and describes the projects which have been approved by
County Council and must be submitted to the United States Department of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD).

 

The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) 

The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires consolidated
planning and reporting of all communities as a condition of receiving federal grants for housing and
community development including the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).  At the end
of each fiscal year, CDBG recipient communities across the Country report to their citizens and
elected officials how they have utilized their grant funds to improve the community and the lives of
the people who live in it. The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) is
the HUD-prescribed vehicle for providing that information. The Community Development Department
is pleased to report effective performance on meeting project objectives as shown in the above draft report

for Program Year 2012.  The Community Development Department continues its efforts to be effective

stewards of federal funds in the service of its residents.
