Shelby County Department of Housing (SCDH) is preparing its Consolidated Annual Performance Report (CAPER) for the program year that began July 1, 2013 and ended June 30, 2014. The CAPER is required by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development to describe CDBG and HOME program activities undertaken by SCDH to address housing and community development needs, especially in low- and moderate-income areas of Shelby County, outside the City of Memphis.
