Yes. Eligible renewal project applicants will have the ability to consolidate two or more eligible renewal projects (but no more than four projects) into one project application during the application process. The projects being combined during a grant consolidation will continue uninterrupted. To be eligible for consolidation, projects must have the same recipient and be for the same component; and they will be funded in this Competition only with FY 2019 funds.
By using the project application process to consolidated eligible renewal projects, if approved and selected for conditional award, the recipient will only need to execute one grant agreement.
To apply for a consolidated grant, applicants must submit separate renewal project applications for each of the projects that are proposed to be consolidated, and an application for the new consolidated project with the combined budget and information of all projects proposed for consolidation. Project applications that are proposed to be consolidated will be ranked, and if all those projects are selected, HUD will award the single consolidated project. If one of the projects proposed to be consolidated is found to be ineligible for consolidation or is not selected, HUD may award only those projects that are eligible for renewal and selected as separate projects. See Section V.B.3.a.(6) of this NOFA for additional requirements.
