HUD Releases Notice CPD-16-01: Guidance on Submitting Consolidated Plans and Annual Action Plans for FY 2016
Notice CPD-16-01 instructs all Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME, Housing Trust Fund (HTF), Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) formula grantees on the timing of submission of fiscal year (FY) 2016 consolidated plans and action plans. This Notice provides instructions to grantees/participating jurisdictions under each of these programs regarding costs incurred prior to execution of a grant agreement. This Notice further informs Entitlement CDBG grantees and HOME participating jurisdictions of waivers being made available to certain grantees/participating jurisdictions to assist in the implementation of the pre-award costs instructions. These procedures apply equally to grantees’ 3-5 year consolidated plans as well as to annual action plans (either as a stand-alone document or as a component of the overall consolidated plan submission).
