Applicants strongly encouraged to update their registration to avoid a last minute crush

WASHINGTON - The Department of Housing and Urban Development today published HUD's Fiscal Year 2007 "SuperNOFA," a notice that makes available approximately $2.4 billion in funding through 38 individual grant programs (see attached list). In launching this year's grant application season, HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson strongly encouraged prospective applicants to read the general and program-specific sections of their funding notices thoroughly and to follow the registration information available in HUD's step-by-step registration guide.

"Every year, we strive to make it easier for our applicants to access the funding that can create a real difference in their communities," said Jackson. "HUD is moving full steam ahead toward e-government and we invite our applicants to become familiar with the supporting materials we've produced to streamline the submission process even more."

This year's SuperNOFA will continue the Department's push toward requiring nearly all grant applications to be submitted electronically through Applicants seeking funding through HUD's Continuum of Care homeless assistance programs will not be required to submit their applications electronically.

The electronic submission process is part of President Bush's management agenda to increase funding opportunities for states, local governments and nonprofit grassroots organizations that house and serve lower income families living in their communities. Last year, more than 4,300 applicants successfully submitted their applications electronically.

This year, HUD is announcing the return of three grant programs: The Early Doctoral Research Program, the Doctoral Dissertation Research Program, and Housing Counseling Training Program.
The doctoral programs provide universities with funding for doctoral students who focus research efforts on policy-relevant housing and urban development issues. The Housing Counseling Training Program is designed to improve and standardize the quality of counseling provided by housing counselors employed by HUD-approved housing counseling agencies.

HUD is continuing to provide help so that every applicant can successfully meet this year's electronic submission requirements. HUD's Desktop User's Guide provides easy-to-follow instructions to guide applicants through the electronic submission process. In addition, HUD also offers training via webcast.
