Reminder: Register Today: CDBG-DR and CDBG-MIT Grantee-Led Sessions - March 30 - April 1, 2021

The Disaster Recovery and Special Issues Division (DRSI) is hosting a series of grantee-led virtual training sessions for Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) and Community Development Block Grant Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) grantees. DRSI has identified a diverse group of grantees from across the country who will provide brief presentations on their experiences as well as insights across a variety of hot topic issues. A large portion of each session will be set aside for question and answer segments between grantees. Register today!

These nine grantee-led sessions are the first component of a comprehensive 2021 CDBG-DR and CDBG-MIT Virtual Training Series being hosted by DRSI.

Training Objectives

Participants will:

  • Learn from experienced program administrators from across the country about best practices and effective solutions to challenges
  • Gain an understanding of useful approaches and strategies which can inform implementation of their own CDBG-DR and CDBG-MIT programs

Who Should Attend?

These grantee-led sessions are intended for all CDBG-DR and CDBG-MIT grantees. As space permits, partners such as subrecipients and developers may also attend.

A recording of each session will be posted at a later date.
