Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
The City of Baytown is an entitled jurisdiction for HUD funding. The City creates and adopts a series of plans and reports to determine the needs of the citizens; prioritize those needs; and to allow the input of the citizens.
Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) is an evaluation of the progress made in carrying out the Community Development Development Block Grant (CDBG) programs and activities identified in the 2020 Action Plan.
The 2021 Annual Action Plan identifies actions and activities to be taken in the 2021-2022 program year (October 1, 2021 – September 30, 2022), detailing how the City of Baytown will use its Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.
- This Plan is mandated by HUD to determine how the City will use Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds for the next five (5) years.
- The Consolidated Plan addresses housing, social services, infrastructure, and community revitalization needs in Baytown.
- It also develops the goals and objectives that the City will fund and/or support in relationship to low to moderate-income persons and areas.
The primary goal is to provide citizens--especially low and moderate income citizens of the community where CDBG-funded activities will take place-- an opportunity to participate in an advisory role in the planning, implementation, and assessment of the programs and projects.
The HUD Consolidated Plan’s certification to affirmatively further fair housing requires entitlement/participating jurisdictions to undertake a Fair Housing Plan (FHP). In order to develop a Fair Housing Plan, the jurisdiction must develop an Analysis of Impediments (AI) to Fair Housing Choice that involves and addresses housing concerns of the entire community.
