SNAPS-Shots: ESG Activity Closeout Checklist

December 04, 2018 Print ShareThis

HUD’s Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs (SNAPS) has posted a new SNAPS-Shot for the Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program on the HUD Exchange: ESG Activity Closeout Checklist.

This SNAPS-Shot details the criteria ESG recipients use when completing activities in IDIS, including:

  • Completing draws in IDIS
  • Reducing the Admin Activity (AD subfund), if necessary
  • Reflecting the correct activity component
  • Following the activity naming convention
  • Confirming activity details are accurate
  • Matching draws to internal financial records
  • Identifying subrecipients for funding and draws


If you have questions about the ESG Program or IDIS, please submit them through the HUD Exchange Ask A Question (AAQ) portal. On Step 2 of the question submission process, select “ESG” or “IDIS” in the “My question is related to” dropdown menu.
