  • CAPER for Program Year 39
    The Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER) for Year 39 is now available to view online. This report is produced annually by the Department of Neighborhood and Business Development, and highlights the efforts and accomplishments of NBD funded agencies in meeting the goals and needs of the Syracuse community (as outlined in the Five Year Consolidated Plan 2010–2014).
    A public meeting for the CAPER is scheduled for July 23, 2014 from 5:30-7:30pm in the Atrium at City Hall Commons. This meeting is a part of the City’s Citizen Participation Plan and is an opportunity for the public to see how public funds were spent,  have the chance to ask questions about programming, and provide input on how funding should be allocated in the future. This year, each agency will have a  booth in the Atrium to display accomplishments and highlight program successes. The public will be allowed to informally peruse and converse with agency and City staff as well as provide important feedback about programming to be included in the final CAPER report.
