Over the past several months, HUD has been working to establish new Core Performance Reporting Requirements for discretionary funded grants in order to streamline data across different HUD discretionary programs. HUD is now calling for volunteers to participate in a one (1) year pilot program to establish a working model of grantee reporting for the new requirements. All HOPWA competitive grantees are eligible to participate.
Benefits of Participating
Participants of the pilot program will have the advantage of becoming accustomed to and knowledgeable about the new reporting approach before it becomes mandatory, and will therefore have more time to adjust systems and learn methodology. Additionally, pilot competitive grantees will have the benefit of receiving technical assistance support and guidance throughout the pilot from HUD and HUD contractors to successfully complete and submit reports. Pilot grantees can also choose to utilize a pilot application which directly inputs information and receives basic format reports, and pilot competitive grantees will also have input in how to improve the reporting approach before it is finalized and moved to full implementation.
Pilot grantees are expected to engage with HUD’s Office of Grants Management and Oversight (and their contractor) through email, webinar tutorials, etc., to provide feedback, and to submit timely reports over the span of the pilot program.
If you are interested in participating in the pilot program, please email Claire Donze at Claire.L.Donze@HUD.gov
with the contact information for the person in your program who will act as lead.
Thank you in advance for your participation, and we look forward to hearing from you.
