Notice CPD-20-06: Guidance on Using HUD's CPD Funds in Opportunity Zones


Date Published: June 2020


The purpose of this Notice is to encourage all Community Planning and Development (CPD) program grantees under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), Housing Trust Fund (HTF), and Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) programs to consider using their allocations to support projects and activities in designated Opportunity Zones (OZs). The flexibility of CPD programs allows allocations to be used for a range of activities that can support and complement OZs. This Notice provides general guidance on the types of projects and activities that grantees may consider in conjunction with OZs. By no means does this Notice provide an exhaustive list of eligible activities; it instead is meant to provide a general overview for how grantees can begin to consider leveraging CPD funds in OZs.

This document is intended only to provide clarity to the public regarding existing requirements under the law or agency policies.
