Regions 7, 8 & 10: Moving CDBG Forward: TA and Program Outreach Webinar
August 06, 2013 | 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM EDT
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD) invite you to the first in a series of outreach webinars as part of the Moving CDBG Forward: TA and Program Outreach project.
In the past 25 years, there have been only two significant revisions to the CDBG program’s regulations. HUD’s recent experience with the Neighborhood Stabilization Program and CDBG Disaster Recovery grants have provided insight on ways to improve the core CDBG program to make it easier to administer and to improve grantee performance and accountability.
The purpose of these webinars is to solicit feedback from grantees and other stakeholders on obstacles they encounter in the CDBG program and whether solutions are best provided by technical assistance (TA) and training (through HUD’s OneCPD initiative) or by changes to the program itself.
To engage grantees and other stakeholders in this conversation, HUD invites grantees from Regions 7, 8, & 10 to register for the first regional webinar on Tuesday, August 6, 2013 from 3:30 PM – 5:00 PM EDT at https://secure.confertel.net/tsregister.asp?program=HUDBreakoutAugust6.
This webinar will include a plenary session and four breakout sessions on different topics including Technical Assistance & Planning and Simplifying Activities & Participation. Participants will be required to register for one & only one breakout session, so please carefully consider which topics are most important to you and your organization. Registration is required to participate in these outreach sessions, so please register as quickly as possible.
For more information on Moving CDBG Forward project and a full schedule of events you can attend, please refer to the Moving CDBG Forward announcement on the OneCPD Resource Exchange.
Thank you for your interest in strengthening the CDBG Program. HUD looks forward to your participation in these listening sessions.
