HUD PUBLISHES FISCAL YEAR 2006 FUNDING NOTICE MAKING $2.2 BILLION AVAILABLE THROUGH 39 INDIVIDUAL PROGRAMS
Department continues push toward e-government

WASHINGTON - Housing and Urban Development Secretary Alphonso Jackson today unveiled HUD's Fiscal Year 2006 "SuperNOFA," a notice that officially makes available approximately $2.2 billion in grants through 39 individual programs (see below). In January, HUD published the first part of this year's funding notice to give applicants a jump-start in preparing this year's applications and to promote early electronic registration.

This year's SuperNOFA will continue the Department's shift toward requiring nearly all grant applications to be submitted electronically through www.grants.gov. Like last year, those seeking funding through HUD's Continuum of Care homeless assistance programs will not be required to submit their applications electronically.

"HUD's working overtime to make this transition to e-government as smooth as possible," said Jackson. "We've streamlined our applications and are continuing to be responsive to our applicant community so that our partners can better access the funding they need to help people and places in need."

The electronic submission process is part of the President Bush's management agenda and will significantly increase access to 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 5,400 applicants successfully submitted their applications electronically and it's expected even more will make the transition this year. Like last year, HUD is encouraging applicants to begin the required registration process early.

Jackson added, "Last year taught us that you can't start the registration process too early. We're asking new applicants to register right away and for those who've already registered to update their registration information. HUD staff are standing by to help you through this process but the worst thing you can do is wait."

HUD is continuing to provide technical assistance and information so that every applicant can successfully meet this year's electronic submission requirements. For example, HUD is providing an easy step-by-step registration guide for new applicants as well as for those who have previously registered. To read the Department's step-by-step registration guide, visit HUD's website.

HUD is the nation's housing agency committed to increasing homeownership, particularly among minorities; creating affordable housing opportunities for low-income Americans; and supporting the homeless, elderly, people with disabilities and people living with AIDS. The Department also promotes economic and community development as well as enforces the nation's fair housing laws. More information about HUD and its programs is available on the Internet and espanol.hud.gov.
