Cpd Transformation Initiative Technical Assistance Grant

What is the aim of the Cpd Transformation Initiative Technical Assistance Grant?

The purpose of the Cpd Transformation Initiative Technical Assistance Grant program is to provide state and local government and nonprofit recipients of federal community development, affordable housing, and special needs funding with the technical and capacity building assistance needed to successfully carry out CPD programs.

The Core Curricula for Skills-based Training will ensure that grantee staff for all of HUD’s programs will have the necessary skills and qualifications to successfully carry out their responsibilities. The purpose of the HUD Core Curricula for Skills-Based Training is to develop and deliver training courses and seminars to improve the core skills of grantee staff in the following areas common to many HUD programs: Development Finance, Environmental Review and Compliance, Financial Management and Analysis, Asset Management and Preservation of HUD-Assisted Projects, and Construction and Rehabilitation Management.

Providers will work closely in conjunction with HUD program staff to address the skills-based training needs of PIH, CPD, and Housing grantees and their program partners. Eligible applicants seeking funding to provide assistance under both the Cpd Transformation Initiative Technical Assistance Grants and Core Curricula Training programs must submit a separate application for each.
