Using eCart for the ESG CAPER


This webinar, held on October 29, 2015, introduced Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program recipients to the ESG-CAPER Annual Reporting Tool (eCart). Presenters will demonstrate how to use the eCart for the ESG Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER), explain how to submit the eCart as part of the CAPER submission in the eCon Planning Suite, and answer questions related to eCart.

  • Reviewing and correcting data validation errors.
  • Using the eCart to filter ESG data.
  • Attaching eCart to screen CR-65 in the eCon Planning Suite.
