Aug. 11, 2022
Community Compass brings together technical assistance funding appropriations from across HUD program offices, including the offices of Community Planning and Development, Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, Housing, Public and Indian Housing, and Policy Development and Research. This cross-funding approach recognizes that HUD’s grantees, subgrantees, and other customers often interact with a variety of HUD programs as they deliver housing or community development services. Community Compass allows for holistic technical assistance to address the program and policy implementation deficiencies and skill gaps of grantees and subgrantees across multiple HUD programs, often within the same engagement.
