FY 2010 HUD Technical Assistance and Capacity Building

FY 2010 HUD Technical Assistance and Capacity Building

OUR WORK

Projects

The OneCPD Integrated Practitioner Assistance System (OneCPD) provides comprehensive, needs-based, and cross-program technical assistance to maximize the impact of HUD funds. HUD’s Fiscal Year 2010 Technical Assistance and Capacity Building under the Transformation Initiative Notice of Funding Availability, commonly referred to as OneCPD1, was HUD’s first attempt to integrate their multiple technical assistance awards within the Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD) under a single program.

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 CPD grantees in understanding relevant CPD and federal requirements. Under OneCPD1, the team has provided needs assessments and technical assistance to grantees in California, Maryland, and North Carolina.
