Analysis of Impediments – 2015 – 2020 


This 2019 CAPER-Draft provides a comprehensive overview of the City of Huntsville’s Community Development Department’s progress in meeting benchmarks, implementing programming and achieving economic development goals involving fair housing initiatives.


Every year, the City of Huntsville must prepare a Consolidated Plan to address identified community needs with Community Development Block Grant funds (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership Program funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
