CDBG-DR Policy Bulletins and FAQs
CDBG-DR Policy Bulletins and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) are developed to support grantees with the implementation of their CDBG-DR programs. The bulletins are aimed at addressing more complex concepts that grantees have identified through coordination with HUD and should be utilized as a resource for building comprehension and identifying next steps. The FAQs will interpret policy and program implementation criteria in a more streamlined manner than a full bulletin.
