Description

This memorandum explains the availability of waivers of certain regulatory requirements associated with several Community Planning and Development (CPD) grant programs to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to facilitate assistance to eligible communities and households economically impacted by COVID-19. This memorandum covers program-specific waivers for the following CPD programs, including for grants that have not yet been awarded (e.g., funds awarded under the FY 2021 Appropriations Act):

  • Continuum of Care (CoC)
  • Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP)
  • Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA)

This memorandum also announces a simplified notification process for recipients of these programs to use this waiver flexibility to expedite the delivery of assistance. CPD Field Office Directors, Deputy Directors, and Program Managers are instructed to inform CPD recipients operating within their jurisdictions of the content of this memorandum.
