Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, businesses, and private institutes of higher education for technical assistance to distressed regions or cities. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Activities that are eligible for funding include disaster resilience and recovery in distressed areas, targeted private sector investment, and financial management. Applicants with demonstrable experience across all three topics are sought. As new HUD priorities and customer needs emerge, TA assignments may address additional programmatic or policy areas. No less than half of the total funds targeted to cities with populations under 40,000 that were impacted by a natural disaster.

The objectives of this NOFA are to:

- Provide communities facing long-term economic challenges with accessible and comprehensive technical assistance that will help them adopt effective, efficient, and sustainable financial management practices (including but not limited to the management of disaster recovery and resilience funds)
- Build capacity for financial management, economic revitalization, affordable housing, and disaster recovery and resilience in distressed communities by building partnerships between public agencies, community members, non-profits, and private organizations
- Improve communities’ working knowledge of federal development programs, including indirect subsidy sources such as Opportunity Zones and the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program
- Develop a set of best practices and recommendations regarding financial management and disaster recovery and resilience that can be shared with other communities facing similar challenges

The technical assistance provided by the successful applicant will be community-specific rather than program-specific and will be scaled to ensure a measurable impact on the community’s growth and resilience, as well as the efficient use of public funds. To that end, the funding source is seeking an awardee that will take a place-based, holistic approach to technical assistance.

The experience and expertise needed includes a variety of topics: public administration, financial management, land use development, business attraction and retention, workforce development, fair housing, community engagement, data collection and analysis, disaster recovery and resilience, etc. Applicants are encouraged to propose the procurement of contract and consultant services as necessary to demonstrate experience across these topic areas.

Eligible activities:

1. Needs Assessments
2. Direct TA and Capacity Building Engagements
3. Development and Maintenance of Tools and Products
4. Self-Directed and Group Learning
5. Administrative
6. Coordination
