Notice to FY 2018 Comprehensive Housing Counseling NOFA Recipients: Updated Grant Extension Information

December 09, 2019 Print ShareThis

As the deadline for final quarterly reports, final draw requests, and grant closeout approaches, the Office of Housing Counseling would like to notify agencies of the following:

  • The deadline for a grantee to request an extension of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 Grant performance period was August 31, 2019. However, the Office of Housing Counseling is opening an additional time frame for FY 2018 grantees to request extensions of their FY 2018 performance period. FY 2018 grantees will now have until December 31, 2019 to request an extension of their FY 2018 Comprehensive Housing Counseling grant.
  • FY 2018 NOFA grants had a period of performance of October 1, 2017 through September 30, 2019. This means that all activities for which a grantee may request reimbursement must have occurred during this time frame. The deadline for FY 2018 NOFA grantees to submit their final report, which must cover all activity conducted under the grant, is December 31, 2019.

As a reminder, HUD requires grantees to draw down funds in conjunction with quarterly reports, and HUD Point of Contacts (POC) will process payment requests only upon receipt of an acceptable quarterly or final report.

Please notify your HUD POC to begin the grant extension process. If you have any questions, please email
