Plans & Reports
AMENDMENTS TO ANNUAL ACTION PLANS
The City of Baltimore’s Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) is proposing to amend the Annual Action Plans for Program Years (PY)/City Fiscal Years (CFY) 2021/2022; 2020/2021 2019/2020; 2018/2019; and 2017/2018. These amendments repurpose unspent CDBG funds. These funds are unspent because projects and activities were completed and did not use their entire entitlement allocation, or a portion of these allocations was offset by program income earned by the CDBG program.
For further information regarding these amendments please contact Susan Moriarty or call (410) 396-1966. Due to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions, copies will not be available to view in libraries or government offices.
Any comments regarding the proposed amendments should be submitted in writing to Susan Moriarty at the above email address. Comments received, and actions taken on comments, will be included in the final amendment submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The deadline for comments is April 24, 2022.
RELEASE OF DRAFT CONSOLIDATED ANNUAL PERFORMANCE AND EVALUATION REPORT FOR THE ESG, HOPWA, HOME, AND CDBG PROGRAMS
The City of Baltimore will release on March 9, 2022, a draft Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) for the federally funded Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA), HOME Investment Partnership (HOME) and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) programs. The draft CAPER covers City Fiscal Year 2020 activities – from July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020. The report identifies financial resources received through the ESG, HOPWA, HOME, and CDBG programs; describes activities funded through these programs; and assesses the City’s success in meeting goals contained in the Consolidated Plan covering July 2015 through June 2020 time period. Following the public comment period, a final draft CAPER summarizing comments received, and actions taken on those comments, will be submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on or about March 28, 2022.

This document serves as the application for funding for four Federal formula grant programs: Community Development Block Grants (CDBG); Home Investment Partnership (HOME); Housing Opportunities for People with AIDS (HOPWA); and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG). In addition, a certified approved plan is required to apply for more than 17 housing and social service grant programs overseen by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
