Lewiston will receive $213,738 in CDBG funding for its 2018-2019 program year.

A Consolidated Plan is a document HUD requires each entitlement agency to prepare in order to receive CDBG funds. A typical Consolidated Plan is normally a 3-year or 5-year plan that identifies local needs in housing and community development and establishes local goals to accomplish by utilizing CDBG funds. The Consolidated Plan should also identify programs to be carried out and resources to be used as implementation strategies.
The City of Lewiston's 2013-2017 Consolidated Plan and Citizen Participation Plan are provided below.

An Annual Action Plan is prepared by entitlement communities for the program year which outlines in more detail what activities will be carried out and how they will be funded. The programmed activities in the Action Plan should help achieve the community's long-term goals identified in the Consolidated Plan.

Below are Action Plans of prior years:
HUD requires every grantee to submit a Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) within 90 days after the end of each program year. A CAPER is a report on progress made in implementing the community's Consolidated Plan for the CDBG program, through the proposed actions identified in the one-year Action Plan. HUD requires the CAPER to include three key parts: 1) A narrative of accomplishments in relation to goals and objectives identified in the one-year Action Plan and Consolidated Plan; 2) Statistical and Financial information about individual activities undertaken during the year; 3) Must include information on expenditures, caps and program income. The primary goal of the CAPER is for the grantee and HUD to evaluate performance against the established goals and objectives.
Below are CAPER Reports of prior years:
As the grantee of the CDBG program, the City is required to engage the general public in the development and review of the Consolidated Plan, Annual Action Plan, and CAPER before it is finalized and submitted to HUD for approval. The City has an established process for citizen participation, which includes a public notice in the local newspaper, a public hearing to solicit public input, and a 15-day (CAPER) or 30-day (Consolidated and Annual Action Plans) public review and comment period prior to submittal to HUD.
