In keeping with our commitment to transparency, we have placed on-line both volumes of the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) for Program Year 2010. The report provides a summary of accomplishments for three federal programs administered by Cook County: the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), and the Emergency Shelter Grants (ESG). The three overarching goals of these federal programs are to benefit persons of low- and moderate-income (persons earning less than eighty percent of the area median income) by:
  • developing a suitable living environment,
  • providing decent and affordable housing, and
  • expanding economic opportunities
