Plans & Reports
The City of Baltimore’s Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) invites non-profit organizations and City Departments to submit proposals for projects to be funded through the CDBG Program. The major focus of Baltimore’s CDBG program is physical and social development activities. A restricted portion of the grant funds can be expended for social services and administrative and planning costs. Requests for funding under these categories will be carefully weighed to ensure adherence to expenditure caps. All applications for CFY 2022 (CD-47) funds must be submitted electronically via the Neighborly platform.

Five-year Consolidated Plan
The Consolidated Plan is a federally required document that guides and describes certain community development efforts in Baltimore City. 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).
Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER)
The City of Baltimore annually releases a 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 report identifies financial resources received through the ESG, HOPWA, HOME, CDBG programs; describes activities funded through these programs and their relationship to community development objectives; and assesses the City’s success in meeting goals contained in the most recent Consolidated Plan.
For Fiscal Year 20-25, DHCD has provided an extensive overview of accomplishments as well a request for capital funds to support the agency's mission.
