Upcoming: Moving CDBG Forward: TA and Program Outreach Listening Sessions

September 03, 2013 Print ShareThis

HUD is pleased to announce a series of upcoming Moving CDBG Forward: TA and Program Outreach listening sessions, which will feature webinars, conference presentations, and in-person discussions intended to solicit feedback from grantees about CDBG.

In the past 25 years, there have been only two significant revisions to the CDBG program’s regulations. HUD’s recent experience with the Neighborhood Stabilization Program and CDBG Disaster Recovery grants have provided insight on ways to improve the core CDBG program to make it easier to administer and to improve grantee performance and accountability. 

Specifically, HUD seeks input from grantees and other stakeholders on obstacles they encounter in the CDBG program and whether solutions are best provided by technical assistance (TA) and training (through HUD’s OneCPD initiative) or by changes to the program itself. To engage grantees and other stakeholders in this conversation, HUD plans to hold 9 in-person information and listening sessions and 10 interactive Webinars during the summer and early fall of 2013. HUD will also host an electronic forum at HUD Ideas in Action to continue these conversations. A summary of the topics covered during these sessions and a full schedule of these events can be found below:

Registration instructions for some of the trainings are now posted below. The remainder of the registration instructions will be posted as they become available.
