HUD Community Compass Technical Assistance and Capacity Building Program: Through this NOFA, HUD is announcing the availability of approximately $56 million for its Community Compass Technical Assistance and Capacity Building Program (Community Compass), HUD’s integrated technical assistance 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 provide effective administrative and managerial oversight of HUD funding. The goal of Community Compass is to empower communities by providing effective technical assistance and capacity building so that successful program implementation is sustained. HUD recognizes that its customers often interact with a variety of HUD programs as they deliver housing or community development services. Community Compass brings together technical assistance 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 technical assistance to address the needs of grantees and subgrantees across multiple HUD programs, often within the same engagement, as well as address cross-agency issues. Applicants are encouraged to procure subcontractors and consultants to demonstrate expertise across a wide variety of HUD programs, as well as in specific skill and policy areas. Community Compass is centrally managed by HUD Headquarters with involvement of the HUD Regional, Field, and Area Offices. a. TA Focus Areas - Table of Categories, Programs and Topics, and Funding Sources HUD expects to focus its technical assistance (TA) efforts and available funding on the programs and topics listed for each category in the table below.
