Please save the date for the upcoming DRGR Workshop from October 24 - 25, 2013
from 8:30AM to 4:30PM
. The two day training location is at the Five Points Plaza Building on 40 Marietta Street Atlanta, GA 30303
This workshop is intended for grantees under P.L. 113-2 (Disaster Relief Appropriations Act, 2013).
While registration is not yet available, an email will be sent out via this mailing list when registration becomes available for this training.
The workshop will provide the opportunity to improve understanding of DRGR concepts and will walk CDBG-DR grantees through the five DRGR modules, highlighting key actions such as entering information into DRGR, the types of information to report, and DRGR functions and usability. The workshop includes a combination of lecture and hands-on case study exercises, allowing participants to practice each task in the system. The training will also review common DRGR missteps and questions, and teach grantees how to tell their community's recovery story, with a specific focus on P.L. 113-2 reporting requirements.
This training is designed for staff that work regularly with DRGR and are responsible for DRGR functions at the grantee level. Because of limited space, HUD recommends attendance by beginner level users.
The workshop will be conducted as two full days, from 8:30AM to 4:30PM. Please plan your travel arrangements accordingly. Because the training modules build on each other it is important to participate for the two full days.
