HUD is pleased to announce the availability of several *new* training modules for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) grantees on using the Integrated Disbursement and Information System (IDIS).

As a CDBG grantee, whether you are a veteran user of IDIS or you are just learning how to add activities, report on accomplishments, or initiate financial transactions in IDIS, this series of training modules is for you! In each module, follow along as IDIS expert users show you exactly how to navigate through screens and enter your data correctly.

You can:

  • Review just those points where you need a refresher
  • See the progression of screens for adding activities or reporting accomplishments
  • Listen to video FAQs
  • Check your knowledge with application questions

Reporting on Area Benefit Accomplishments

*New* Introduction to Low Mod Area Activities provides information on the eligible uses of CDBG for LMA activities, the Low Mod Area national objective, and common mistakes to avoid when reporting on those activities.

*New* Adding LMA Activities provides step by step instruction on adding a new LMA activity, so that you can commit program funds to it and use IDIS to draw funds from your grant allocation.

*New* Reporting on LMA Accomplishments provides instruction on the data entry process of reporting accomplishment data for an LMA activity, which must be done annually although more frequent reporting is encouraged.
