Dear Tribal Leader Letter – Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG)-Competitive Grant Program: 1) Corrected Application Package and 2) Training Sessions

The initial Grants.gov posting of the IHBG-Competitive Grant Program NOFA contained an omission error regarding the Certification for Opportunity Zone (OZ) Preference Points. The application package, via correction, now includes the OZ Certification form for applicants to download. Also, for any applicants that started the application process, the OZ Certification form has been removed from the downloadable instructions zip file. All applicants should download a new application package to ensure you are accessing the most recent, updated materials. For further information and to view the changes, please visit https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=328626 HUD will host two training sessions via webinar for eligible applicants on the IHBG-Competitive Grant Program NOFA. These sessions are being offered to provide multiple opportunities for potential applicants to attend and ask questions. One session will be held September 21st-24th from 12:30-5:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) and the other session will be held September 29th-October 2nd from 12:30-5:00 p.m. EDT.   Please refer to the agenda for a breakdown of the webinar training topics.
