The Township of Middletown has prepared its Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). The CAPER outlines the actions and accomplishments in Program Year 2015 (for the period January 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015) regarding the Township’s annual Action Plan and Five Year Consolidated Plan. The Consolidated Plan was adopted to enable the Township to apply to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for funds under the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG). The Consolidated Plan includes an assessment of housing and homeless needs in the Township; a housing market analysis, an analysis of Public Housing needs; and strategies to address housing and non-housing needs. The CAPER is intended to enable citizens to understand how local programs contributed during the year toward meeting the needs and objectives identified in the Action Plan and Five Year Consolidated Plan. The CAPER consists of three (3) basic parts – 1) a summary of resources and program accomplishments, 2) the status of actions taken during the year to implement the Township’s overall strategy to address housing needs, and 3) an evaluation of progress made during the past year in addressing identified priority needs and objectives.
The primary Consolidated Plan objectives for Program Year 2015 were as follows:
1. To rehabilitate and preserve existing affordable housing stock for low and moderate income households.
2. Accessibility improvements at Ideal Beach in North Middletown.
Beginning March 1, 2016 a copy of the CAPER will be available for public inspection at the Department of Planning and Community Development, 3 Penelope Lane, between the hours of 8:30 am and 4:30 pm.
