The CAPER covers community and economic development activities conducted in the non-entitlement areas of the State with federal funding from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Home Investment Partnerships (HOME), Emergency Shelter Grants (ESG), Housing Opportunities for Person with Aids (HOPWA), and Lead Based Paint Hazard Control (LHCP) programs.
HOME Program Minority Concentration Data 2011-12 – (Microsoft Excel)
In response to Recommendation 8-4 of the draft Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing (AI), HOME has compiled data which illustrates whether HOME-funded activities completed in FY 11-12 are located in areas of minority concentration. This data is available at the link directly above. For purposes of this dataset, an activity is considered to be located in an area of minority concentration if minorities are over-represented in that Census Tract by more than 10 percentage points compared to the county as a whole.
The Executive Summary of the draft AI is available as Appendix E of the draft CAPER, at the link above the CAPER paragraph above. The entire AI is available at http://www.hcd.ca.gov/hpd/hrc/rep/fed/ai_web.html.
