Request In-Depth Program Assistance

What is In-Depth Program Assistance?

If you are a HUD grantee or recipient of HUD funding, such as a state or local government, public housing authority, tribe or tribally-designated entity, HMIS organization, or Continuum of Care, you are eligible to request assistance with the following:

  • In-depth assistance with implementing, operating, or administering a HUD-funded program
  • Issues that may require site visits and reoccurring communication with consultants
  • Long-term assistance to build organizational skills and capacity for operating HUD programs

In-depth program assistance involves coordination with HUD Headquarters and Field Office staff and HUD\'s consultants over a period of weeks or months. It may be one-on-one assistance or assistance delivered to a cohort of grantees.

Who isn’t Eligible to Receive In-Depth Program Assistance?

  • Organizations who are not receiving HUD program funds or participating in a HUD-funded program or initiative.
  • Subrecipient organizations or project sponsors. You will need to contact the grantor or pass-through organization that receives HUD funds to submit a request for assistance.
  • Individuals looking for homelessness, housing or rental assistance. Go to the Need Housing Assistance? page for hotlines and service locators that help you find a range of local services, including housing, food, health, and safety.
