Tell Us How We Did!

The City of Denton is completing the 2022-23 Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) for the Community Development Block Grant, HOME Investment Partnership Program, and the Community Development Block Grant – CARES Act funds by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
