The City and County of Denver’s Office of Economic Development will report on the 2008 accomplishments of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs at a public meeting from 6-7:30 p.m. April 21.
The report, officially known as the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER), will offer details on the effectiveness of housing, economic development, public service and neighborhood facilities programs funded by the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Home Investment Partnerships (HOME), Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) and Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) programs.
HUD’s goals are to provide decent housing, provide a suitable living environment and expand economic opportunities. Principle beneficiaries must be extremely low to middle-income residents.
The public meeting is scheduled for Room 4.F.6 of the Wellington Webb Building at 201 W. Colfax Ave. Copies of the draft of CAPER can be obtained by calling (720) 913-1549 or visiting OED at 201 W. Colfax Ave., Dept. 204, Denver, Colo. 80202.
