Codetalk Update – September 24, 2020
Corrected Application Package for IHBG-Competitive Grant Program NOFA
The initial Grants.gov posting of the IHBG-Competitive Grant Program NOFA contained an omission error regarding the Certification for Opportunity Zone (OZ) Preference Points. The application package, via correction, now includes the OZ Certification form for applicants to download. Also, for any applicants that started the application process, the OZ Certification form has been removed from the downloadable instructions zip file. All applicants should download a new application package to ensure you are accessing the most recent, updated materials. For further information and to view the changes, please visit https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=328626.
We just finalized our first round of training today and have another round scheduled for next week in case you missed the training. Please note you must dial in in order to hear the audio portion of the training and that there are new log-in details for each day of the training.
