The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD) is holding a Question and Answer (Q&A) Webinar for all State and Entitlement grantees on best practices to successfully set-up your Integrated Disbursement and Information System (IDIS) Projects in the Annual Action Plan (AAP) section of the eCon Planning Suite.

This webinar will provide an overview of how to properly set-up projects in the AAP, and effectively and efficiently align IDIS Activity accomplishment data with the goals in the Strategic and AAP. The webinar will also help participants avoid time consuming mistakes. Following the presentation, participants will be able to submit questions to HUD and technical assistance providers regarding the eCon Planning Suite and Consolidated Plan process.

Participants will learn best practices for:

  • Creating new projects in the AAP
  • Adding existing projects previously created in IDIS
  • Removing prior-year projects copied over from previous Action Plans
  • Setting-up projects and associating IDIS activities to ensure a more accurate Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER)
  • Project set-up for State grantees
