The City of San Diego has released its draft “CAPER” (Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report). This report describes how the City is doing spending HUD grant money.
The report is always eye-opening. In it, for example, you will find that they plan to help 62,000 people with equity issues over the 5 years of the period, and they have helped a grand total of 2,400 people in the first year (page 2.)
Another thing you will find is that $61M of HOME funds were spent with a total of 9 contractors, all of them white men (page 11.)
The public comment period on the report closes December 1st. We encourage you to read and comment on the reports; send your comments in writing to [email protected].
