CPD Creates Single Website for Grantee Information

HUD’s Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD) has a new website for accessing jurisdictions’ CPD-related grant amounts, plans, and reports. Users can search for information by local jurisdiction or state and, for example, look up how much their city or state received from one or all of the CPD programs. Consolidated Plans, Annual Action Plans, and Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Reports (CAPERs) are now readily accessible. Contact information for local officials responsible for each program is also provided.

For the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, the amount a jurisdiction spent by activity type is presented in Expenditure Reports, and the number of households or individuals purported to have benefitted are available in Accomplishment Reports. National Expenditure and Accomplishment Reports are also available. For the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), a number of reports are available, such as each Participating Jurisdiction’s Open Activities report and the National Production Report.

The new website provides information and reports pertaining to CDBG, HOME, national Housing Trust Fund (HTF), Continuum of Care (CoC), Housing Opportunities for People with AIDS (HOPWA), Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP), and Housing Counseling. Environmental Impact Statements and Environmental Review Reports are also available. Separate HTF Annual Allocation Plans are not available, but key HTF Allocation Plan elements must be in state Annual Action Plans.
