"Making Dreams Come Alive, Empowering Families, and Strengthening Neighborhoods."
HOME funds are granted states and local government by the federal government to implement local housing strategies designed to increase homeownership and affordable housing opportunities for low and very low-income Americans. Participating jurisdictions may use HOME funds for a variety of housing activities, according to local housing needs. Eligible uses of funds can include tenant-based rental assistance; housing rehabilitation; assistance to homebuyers; and new construction of housing. HOME funding may also be used for site acquisition, site improvements, demolition, relocation, and other necessary and reasonable activities related to the development of non-luxury housing.
Each year, the City of Tyler receives federal funds under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) programs of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). In order to receive these yearly grants, the City must submit to HUD a Five Year Consolidated Plan (ConPlan) along with supporting Annual Action Plans for approval.
Five Year Consolidated Plan
The Five Year ConPlan describes the City’s priorities and objectives to provide decent housing, improve living environments, and expand economic opportunities within our local neighborhoods, while the Annual Action Plans list the specific activities and programs to be carried out each year to support the overall vision of the ConPlan. Public participation is paramount to each of these plans.
Annual Action Plans
Each year the City develops an Annual Action Plan which details an overall budget as well as goals and objectives for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) along with specific projects and programs anticipated to be accomplished during the year. Read past years reports below.
Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER)
The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) provides detailed analysis of projects and activities funded throughout the year. The purpose of the CAPER is to compare the actual achievements and outcomes of City programs to the goals that were set forth in the Annual Action Plan. Read the past years’ reports below.
