New Consolidated APR/CAPER

The Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) program has updated the required annual reporting forms and submission process for all HOPWA formula and competitive grantees. The Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) for formula grantees and the Annual Progress Report (APR) for competitive grantees have been consolidated into a new, Excel-based series of workbooks. Submission of the package of new Excel workbooks now fulfills the annual reporting requirements for HOPWA grantees, as outlined in 24 CFR Part 574. This page provides HUD guidance on how to use and submit the forms.

If you have any specific questions about the new Consolidated APR/CAPER workbooks or submission process, please submit your question to the HUD Exchange Ask A Question (AAQ) portal. In Step 2 of the question submission process, select “HOPWA” from the “My question is related to” drop down list.
