NSP Direct Allocation Pool Award Announcements Postponed

In accordance with the publication of the State of Georgia Substantial Amendment to the Action Plan submitted to HUD for consideration of funding for the State NSP program, Section B(6)(k) and (l) states, in part, that: “Should HUD not approve this Action   Plan on a timely basis, the Department reserves the right to adjust this deadline and subsequent

dates affected by HUD’s delay or any needed adjustments to the Action Plan.”

Also that: “On or about February 20, 2009, DCA plans to announce the Direct Allocation awards and other contracts and proceed to issue NSP allocation agreements. Acceptance of allocation agreements by local jurisdictions must occur within 15 days of the announcement.”

DCA has not yet been granted formal award of NSP Funding from HUD. As such, the State is continuing to review applications submitted for the Direct Allocation Pool but must withhold announcement of funding until such time that we are in receipt of the executed NSP Award from HUD so that we may announce funding decisions to State sub-recipients and allow local grantees to meet the 15 day award acceptance timeframe.

Please continue to monitor this website for updates.
