FY 2022 and FY 2023 Community Compass Technical Assistance and Capacity Building

Program Description: Through this NOFO, HUD is announcing the availability of approximately $72,158,000 in FY 2022 funding for its Community Compass Technical Assistance and Capacity Building Program (Community Compass). Contingent upon the availability of FY 2023 appropriations, we reserve the right to award FY 2023 funds based on this single NOFO competition. As HUD’s integrated technical assistance (TA) and capacity building initiative, Community Compass is designed to help HUD’s customers navigate complex housing and community development challenges by equipping them with the knowledge, skills, tools, capacity, and systems to implement HUD programs and policies successfully and sustainably and provide effective administrative and managerial oversight of HUD funding. We recognize that our customers often interact with a variety of HUD programs, and other federal programs servicing common customers, as they deliver housing or community development services. Community Compass brings together TA investments from across HUD program offices, including the offices of Community Planning and Development, Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, Housing, and Public and Indian Housing. This cross-funding approach allows TA to address the needs of grantees and subgrantees across multiple HUD programs, often within the same engagement, as well as address intra-agency and inter-agency issues. You are encouraged to procure contractors and consultants that demonstrate experience across a wide variety of HUD programs, as well as in specific skill and policy areas. Through this NOFO, HUD will also address the TA needs of some emerging priorities that include: Violence Against Women Act's (VAWA) 2022 Reauthorization, racial and gender equity, transit-oriented development, housing supply, reentry housing for persons exiting jails and prisons, and mental health. You are also encouraged to assemble a diverse team of professionals, including persons from the communities HUD serves, that can contribute a perspective that incorporates lived experiences into the development and delivery of technical assistance. Community Compass is centrally managed by HUD Headquarters with the involvement of our Regional, Field, and Area Offices.
