IDIS for CDBG Grantees
Tuesday, March 19 - Wednesday, March 20, 2013
8:30 am - 4:30 pm
HUD Field Office
40 Marietta Street, Five Points Plaza
Atlanta, GA 30303-2806
The IDIS training course, designed for CDBG entitlement grantee staff, provides information on correctly entering data into the system, using IDIS reports to effectively manage and administer CDBG, and avoiding common mistakes when entering CDBG data in IDIS. The training is offered in a hands-on setting, with participants having the opportunity to learn and practice key steps in adding and reporting accomplishment data for a variety of eligible activities, including housing, public facilities, public services and economic development. This training will cover recent changes to the system that particularly impact CDBG grantees, including those in IDIS Release version 11.4 (November, 2012): audit updates, treatment of multiple addresses for housing rehabilitation activities and lead-based paint abatement. Please note that this training will cover the use of IDIS for the CDBG program only.
Due to the hands-on nature of this training, capacity is extremely limited. Registration will be limited to one staff member per CDBG grantee and will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis
