HPRP Financial Management: Strategies for Accelerating Expenditure Rates

Date Published: April 2011



This tool is designed to help HPRP grantees meet the spending requirements set forth in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act legislation. As with all ARRA funds, HPRP grantees and subgrantees are required to spend funds quickly. HPRP grantees are obligated to expend 60 percent of their grant funds within two years of the date HUD signed the grant agreement, and 100 percent of the funds within three years. Grantees that do not meet these deadlines may have their funds recaptured by HUD. It contains a variety of financial management strategies that grantees and subgrantees can use to help accelerate program expenditure rates and avoid recapture of unspent funds.
