Community Development Block Grant Insular Areas Program
Four U.S. territories (i.e., American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) are funded through the CDBG Insular Areas Program. The program is administered by HUD's Field Offices in Puerto Rico and Hawaii. CDBG is authorized under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act (HCDA) of 1974, Public Law 93-383, as amended; 42 U.S.C.-530.1 et seq. Annual funding for the Insular areas is provided in Section 106 (a)(2) of the HCDA of 1974 as amended.

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.
