Integrated Disbursement and Information System
As a nationwide database, the Integrated Disbursement and Information System (IDIS) provides HUD with current information regarding the program activities underway across the Nation, including funding data. HUD uses this information to report to Congress and to monitor grantees. IDIS is the draw down and reporting system for the five CPD formula grant programs: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), Housing Trust Fund (HTF), Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA); and for the CPD competitive grant program HOPWA Competitive. Grantees also use IDIS for Consolidated Planning.
IDIS Account Creation and Maintenance
Instructions for obtaining an IDIS account, maintaining a separation of duties, and the user acceptance testing server are provided to assist grantees in using IDIS.
IDIS Guides, Tools, and Webinars
Guides, tools, webinars, and other resources are provided to assist grantee in using IDIS. View IDIS resource for the following programs: CDBG, HOME, HTF, ESG, and HOPWA.
Grant Based Accounting
HUD has updated IDIS to phase out the first-in-first-out (FIFO) accounting methodology. These changes to IDIS ensure that funds are both committed and disbursed in IDIS on a grant-specific basis, instead of using the FIFO (oldest money disbursed first) method that has been used for the CDBG, HOME, and HOPWA Programs to date. Grant funds are already committed and disbursed in IDIS on a grant-specific basis for the ESG Program. For the other formula programs, the initial changes in IDIS implement grant-specific accounting beginning with FY 2015 formula allocations. With these changes, IDIS will specifically tie activity funding/commitment and draws to the specific grants in IDIS. Funds from pre-2015 grants will continue to be committed and disbursed using the FIFO method.
