About GMO

The Grants Management and Oversight Division (GMO), within the Office of Chief Financial Officer (OCFO), strengthens Departmental internal controls and enhances management integrity across HUD's programs. GMO works closely with Program Offices to streamline grants processes and procedures and increase transparency for results achieved in HUD's grant programs.

GMO is responsible for guidance and policies related to competitive grant programs. This includes issuing guidance for:

  • Notices of Funding Opportunities (NOFOs)
  • Ensuring compliance with pertinent statutes and regulation
  • Ensuring consistency with HUD's strategic goals and policies

GMO is also undertaking multiple initiatives in support of the federal-wide Cross Agency Priority Goal on Results-Oriented Accountability for Grants. Utilize this website to familiarize yourself with GMO’s staff, grant programs, and relevant information.

Standards for SUCCESS

Click Standards for Success to learn more about the framework.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Standards for Success (SfS) is HUD’s standardized reporting framework for its discretionary-funded programs. The framework’s main tenets are: (1) standardization of data elements, measures, definitions, metrics, and reporting periods across HUD programs; (2) alignment of programmatic data elements and measures with higher-level agency priority goals and objectives; and (3) the utilization of record-level reports for greater analysis and responsiveness of programs.
