Program Year 2023 Annual Action Plan (Draft for Public Review)

City of Prescott 2021 CAPER
(Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report)
now available for 30-day public review and comment

Each year the City of Prescott is required to submit a CAPER for the previous program year. The 2021 CAPER highlights annual as well as five-year goals and outcomes.

The City is required to report on: primary activities and programs, demographics, resources and investments, affordable housing, homeless and other special needs, other actions that combat impediments to fair housing, lead based paint awareness activities, institutional structure and monitoring activities. The creation of an on-line annual report from sub-recipients has greatly increased the efficiency of reporting outcomes.

The CDBG Citizen Participation Plan requires a 30-day public review and comment period for the CAPER. All comments from the Citizen Advisory Committee and the public will be submitted along with the CAPER to HUD (US Department of of Housing and Urban Development).

You can review the 2021 City of Prescott CAPER here.

You can request a copy by contacting the CDBG Grant Coordinator, calling 928-777-1205, visiting the Prescott Public Library Information Section at 215 E Goodwin Street in Prescott, or visiting the Community Development Department at 201 S Cortez Street in Prescott.

CDBG Overview

The Community Development Block Grant program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Community Development Block Grants help communities provide decent housing, a suitable living environment, and expanded economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate income.

HUD awards grants to entitlement community grantees to carry out a wide range of community development activities directed toward revitalizing neighborhoods, economic development and providing improved community facilities and services. Entitlement communities develop their own programs and funding priorities.

  • Prescott qualified as an entitlement community in 2005 and has since developed four Five Year Consolidated Plans 2005 – 2009, 2010-2014, 2015-2019, and 2020-2024.

The Five-Year Plan provides the framework for the use of CDBG funding received by the City of Prescott from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). CDBG funds must be used to benefit low and moderate income (LMI) households and neighborhoods. Eligible CDBG activities fall into three broad categories:

  1. Neighborhood Revitalization, Public Services and Facilities
  2. Human Services and Economic Opportunities
  3. Decent Affordable Housing

The Prescott CDBG Program has facilitated and funded: Area LMI benefit infrastructure improvements, (sidewalks and street paving), rehab of low income limited clientele rental units, renovation at residential treatment facilities, a tool lending program, transportation for low income seniors and disabled residents, renovation of two ADA restrooms in public buildings, improved Granite Creek Park, created an outdoor learning center for LMI youth, upgraded veterans affordable housing, coordinated outreach for homeless veterans, improved the quality, efficiency and safety of local shelters, supported Meals on Wheels programming and more.

CDBG Annual Allocation Plan

Each year the City funds a number of projects with the CDBG funds available. Those projects are included in an Annual Action Plan (AAP). You can review current or past AAP’s below. Contact the CDBG Grant Coordinator for more information.
