To meet the challenge of OneCPD’s new approach to the way HUD provides technical assistance and capacity building, Econometrica has joined forces with a team of more than 60 cross-disciplinary community development practitioners and firms from across the country. The Econometrica Team conducts needs assessments of grantees to determine the nature and scope of technical assistance and capacity building needed; provides direct technical assistance based on results of the needs assessments; and develops tools and products to assist Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD) grantees in understanding relevant CPD and federal requirements. Under OneCPD2, the team has provided needs assessments and TA to grantees in California, Mississippi, New Jersey, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania and has conducted outreach sessions and group activities throughout the country.
