HUD-Required Reporting and Plans


Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Review (CAPER)


The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) requires that the Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Review (CAPER) is submitted to United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) 90 days after the end of the program year.  The report details accomplishments of CDBG-funded subrecipient activities as well as the financial status of the CDBG for the prior funded year. Given de lays related to the global pandemic, this deadline was extended by HUD to 180 days after the end of the program year.  To view the CAPER, click here.

HUD Required Planning Documents

Several planning documents and reports are required to be submitted to HUD. The Consolidated Plan is a 5-year plan that identifies housing and community needs, priorities, goals and strategies. The Plan outlines how funds (including federal, state and local) will be allocated to housing and community development activities. The Annual Action Plan is submitted annually and describes how funds will be used for the upcoming fiscal year (July 1st through June 30th). The CAPER re-evaluates projects after the end of the fiscal year. An amendment is submitted when an activity is funded that is substantially different than described in the Annual Action Plan.

 The Housing Needs Assessment Report

In 2012, the City completed a housing needs assessment to update a similar study completed in 2007. The study looked at demographics and housing needs, housing inventory, housing sales data and many more factors to determine affordability gaps and future policy implications from the findings. Since 2007, Santa Fe’s household composition has shifted significantly toward older, single-person households. Despite the economic downturn, housing prices continue to rise and were 65% higher in 2010 than in 2000. Meanwhile the purchasing power of renters has declined -- incomes are flat, while rents have increased 25% since 2000. As many as 3,000 renters earning less than 25% of the Area Median Income are likely to be cost-burdened and not able to find affordable rental homes in Santa Fe.


 Other Policy and Research

The Five-Year Strategic Housing Plan was completed in 2008 as a guide to the projects and programs intended to increase the supply, accessibility and quality of affordable housing through 2013.

The Coalition to End Homelessness updated its strategic plan from 2007 to emphasize homelessness prevention as the most cost-effective way to address homelessness.

As a CDBG-entitlement community, Santa Fe is required to conduct an analysis of fair housing issues affecting access to housing in the community. This report is used to shape outreach campaigns about ending housing discrimination and empowering members of the community to report it.
