One of my astute readers pointed out to me a recent HUD notice to CDBG, ESG, and HOME grantees announcing training and a conference call next week with the Assistant Secretary for CPD on a new eCon Planning Suite to be used to prepare and report on HUD required Consolidated Plans.
Text of email is pasted below:
Next week, for the first time in 17 years, HUD will announce new tools to transform the Consolidated Plan into a tool for priority-setting and targeted investment planning for housing and community development. These tools are designed to support need-driven, place-based decisions and informed public participation to help you meet your goals.
On Monday, May 7 at 1 pm ET, the Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD) will host a webinar to introduce and demonstrate these exciting new tools. To register for the webinar, click on this link. [OHB NOTE: Does not look like you have to be grantee to register for this session].
On Tuesday, May 8 at 3pm ET, Assistant Secretary Márquez will host a call for all grantees to discuss the new tools. To RSVP for this call, please contact Staci Lattimore at Staci.S.Lattimore@hud.gov. To participate, dial (800) 762-7308 and tell the moderator you are calling for “Con Plan Grantees.”
