Shelby County Department of Housing (SCDH) is preparing its Consolidated Annual Performance Report (CAPER) for the program year that began July 1, 2015 and ended June 30, 2016. The CAPER is required by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development to describe CDBG and HOME program activities undertaken by SCDH to address housing and community development needs, especially in low- and moderate-income areas of Shelby County, outside the City of Memphis.
SCDH utilized approximately $911,641.66 in Community Development Block Grant funds and $292,384.09 in HOME funds for the following activities: low-to-moderate income housing rehabilitation and minor home repair; infrastructure/community development improvements to benefit low-to-moderate communities within the Urban County; fair housing activities; administrative expenses; and program delivery costs.
The CAPER will be available for public review Saturday September 3, 2016 through Friday September 23, 2016 at the office of SCDH (1075 Mullins Station Rd., Memphis, TN 38134), the Arlington Public Library, the Collierville Public Library, the Germanton Public Library, the Millington Public Library, and the following branches of the Memphis & Shelby County Public Library: Benjamin L. Hooks and Bartlett. The CAPER may also be reviewed on the Shelby County website: www.shelbycountytn.gov.
