Information about Vermont's housing and community development priorities can be found in the HUD Consolidated Plan. The plan constitutes the State's application for approximately $11 million provided annually to the state by HUD's Office of Community Planning and Development for the Community Development Block Grants (CBDG), Home Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), and $3 million from the National Housing Trust Fund (HTF). The plan covers a five-year period and is updated annually.
The priority needs identified in the plan are based on an extensive housing needs assessment, market analysis, and citizen and stakeholder input. The plan establishes goals for meeting these needs over a five-year period that reflect anticipated resources and past performance. Each goal is accompanied by an estimate of resources that will be used to meet it as well as outcome indicators that will be used to evaluate the State’s performance.
At the end of each program year the state is required to submit a Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) to HUD reporting on the outcomes indicated on that year's Consolidated Plan or Annual Action Plan. The CAPER reports can be found below under its program year.
