Each year the County of San Bernardino receives grant funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), and the HOME Investment Partnership Act (HOME) programs.
These funds are used to meet the primary objective of developing viable communities by providing decent housing, suitable living environments, and expanded economic opportunities, principally for low-and moderate-income persons.
The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) for the County of San Bernardino is prepared in order to report to the public and to HUD about the programs, projects, and activities carried out by the County during the past year to meet the federally-established goal of developing viable communities.
The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report identifies the County’s Consolidated Plan program goals and objectives, and provides an overall assessment of the County’s attainment of these established goals.
The overall assessment of our goal attainment contains accomplishments for each project either undertaken or continued in the program year. As part of the self-evaluation included with this CAPER, we determine whether the established long-term objectives are meeting current needs, and we discuss adjustments to strategies and activities, if any, needed in order to more effectively meet the various goals and strategies outlined in the Consolidated Plan.
