This collection of online technical assistance products will help grantees: create transformative impact in your community, improve the lives of all residents, and especially those with low and moderate income levels; develop strategies that bring partners and resources together, leveraging and building community assets; and implement your program effectively, increasing the likelihood of successful projects.
Grant Based Accounting Requirements
HUD has updated IDIS to phase out the first-in-first-out (FIFO) accounting methodology. These changes specifically tie activity funding and draws to the specific grants in IDIS. The initial changes implement grant-specific accounting beginning with FY 2015 CDBG allocations. Funds from pre-2015 grants will continue to be disbursed using the FIFO method.
