This transmits CHG-2 to Rev-7 of the CPD Monitoring Handbook 6509.2. This Handbook includes all programs and technical areas for which CPD staff have monitoring responsibilities. The primary purpose of this revision is to provide updated guidance for monitoring CPD programs for compliance with 2 CFR part 200, Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (“Uniform Requirements”). Primary changes include:
- Monitoring guidance for the Uniform Requirements covering financial management/audits, cost allowability, procurement, and equipment is included in a new Chapter 34.
- 2 CFR part 200 monitoring guidance on grant and subrecipient management has been added to the individual program Chapters, where applicable.
- Monitoring guidance for six new programs has been added in four Chapters: Appalachia Economic Development Initiative (AEDI), Border Community Capital Initiative (BCCI), and Delta Community Capital Initiative (DCCI), which are all included in a chapter on Community Capital Initiatives (CCI) (Chapter 30); Self-Help Homeownership Opportunity Program (SHOP) (Chapter 31); Rural Capacity Building for Community Development and Affordable Housing Grants (RCB) (Chapter 32); and Capacity Building for Community Development and Affordable Housing Grants (Section 4) (Chapter 33).
- Four chapters have been removed: Chapter 17, Community Development Technical Assistance (CDTA) Cooperative Agreements; Chapter 18, Youthbuild Program; Chapter 20, Consolidated Plan; and Chapter 26, Alternative Monitoring Formats.
