Notice of Public Comment Period: 2021 Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) and Performance Evaluation Report (PER)
 
The State submits its CAPER to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) annually as one of the conditions of receiving federal housing and community development funding through the Community Development Block Grant, HOME Investment Partnerships, Emergency Solutions Grants, Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS programs, and the National Housing Trust Fund.
 
The CAPER provides information to measure the state’s progress during the past year in meeting assistance goals and priorities identified in the Consolidated Plan. It includes a summary and analysis of progress made on affirmatively furthering fair housing and overcoming impediments to fair housing.
 
A draft of the 2021 CAPER and PER is available for public review and comment beginning November 15, 2021 and ending at close of business November 30, 2021. Hard copies of the CAPER can be obtained by emailing Minnesota Housing Finance Agency at mn.housing@state.mn.us.
 
Written public comments on the CAPER and PER must be submitted by November 30, 2021 to: CAPER, Minnesota Housing Finance Agency; 400 Wabasha Street North, Suite 400; St. Paul, MN 55102; via fax to (651) 296-8139 or by email to mn.housing@state.mn.us. To ensure consideration of your comments, type “CAPER” in the subject line of your e-mail.
The State will consider any comments from individuals or groups received in writing and a summary of the written comments on the CAPER and PER and the State’s responses will be included in the final CAPER.  The CAPER and PER will be submitted to HUD on or before December 31, 2021.
 
Please note that the State of Minnesota will be developing its next 5 Year Consolidated Plan for Housing and Community Development in early 2022 and will be seeking significant public input about future uses of these programs at that time.
