The Housing and Community Development Act of 1992 established a Consolidated Planning effort that requires a community-wide inventory, needs analysis and prioritization of low-income housing and community development issues related to federal entitlement funding. This information is incorporated into a 5-Year plan, and updated annually through an Annual Action Plan. Progress made toward meeting overall goals and specified outcomes is documented in the end of year report called the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER).
Every year, Brevard County provides funding from its HOME grant program to the City for affordable housing activities. The City provides the funded activities in its Consolidated and Annual Action Plans.
Pursuant to Florida Statute 420.9075(10) the City prepares an Annual Report covering its accomplishments through June 30th each year for the State Housing Initiatives Partnership (SHIP) program. The report is due on December 31st each year. Every three years, the City is required to develop a Local Housing Assistance Plan (LHAP) for this grant program. The LHAP describes the local strategies the City may implement and fund over the course of the 3-year program cycle.
