Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative agreements to USA nonprofit and for-profit organizations, state, local, and tribal governments, IHEs, small businesses, and school districts for research on federal community development and housing programs. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take four weeks or longer to complete.

The purpose of this project is to develop a better understanding of the effects of specific eligible Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and/or HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) activities. HUD believes that in-depth evaluations and localized case studies would provide insights into the programs’ effectiveness. HUD seeks objective, quantifiable outcome measures that can be attributed to activities supported by these programs, in order to inform policymakers at the federal, state, and local levels.

The projects that this funding is intended to support should build off the existing literature, with innovative new methods and data sources for measuring the impact of specific CDBG eligible activities. Research designs should include a clear discussion of the specific activities that will be analyzed and how any method of analysis will take into account the distinct nature of each eligible activity. The same applies to research that focuses on HOME, particularly because HOME is focused on individual properties or special needs populations rather than broader neighborhood outcomes.

In support of this project’s objectives, awardees may undertake a variety of research and evaluation activities, including those outlined below. HUD anticipates limited funding for travel expenses and surveys. 

  • Developing a work plan, which should include staffing assignments, task budgets, and a timeline of key activities.  
  • Conducting a literature review;
  • Consulting with outside experts and stakeholders; Developing a research design, which should include research questions, hypotheses, data sources, data collection methods, data collection instruments (if applicable), and analysis methods; 
  • Completing all materials required for OMB Paperwork Reduction Act approval, if applicable. Completing Privacy Impact Assessment and System of Records Notice documentation, if applicable; 
  • Obtaining Institutional Review Board approval, if applicable; 
  • Collecting or acquiring data in accordance with the research design; 
  • Data analysis, which could include basic descriptive statistics, advanced statistical analysis, geospatial analysis, and data visualization; 
  • Producing a written report(s) to summarize findings; and 
  • Providing briefings to explain findings to HUD staff and other stakeholders.

Pre-Application Information:

The application deadline is 11:59:59 pm Eastern Standard time on 08/17/2020.

HUD strongly recommends applications be submitted at least 48 hours before the deadline and during regular business hours to allow enough time to correct errors or overcome other problems.

Required Registrations:
- Applicants must be registered with https://www.sam.gov/SAM
- Applicants must provide a valid DUNS number, registered and active at https://www.sam.gov/SAM, in the application. DUNS numbers may be obtained for free from Dun & Bradstreet.
- Anyone planning to submit applications on behalf of an organization must register at grants.gov and be approved by the EBiz POC in SAM to submit applications for the organization.

Registration for SAM and grants.gov is a multi-step process and can take four (4) weeks or longer to complete if data issues arise.

An applicant demonstrating good cause may request a waiver from the requirement for electronic submission. For example, a lack of available Internet access in the geographic area in which your business offices are located. If you cannot submit your application electronically, you must ask in writing for a waiver of the electronic grant submission requirements. HUD will not grant a waiver if HUD does not receive your written request at least 15 days before the application deadline and if you do not demonstrate good cause. An email request for a waiver received by HUD 15 days before the application is due will also be considered. If HUD waives the requirement, HUD must receive your paper application before the deadline of this NOFA. To request a waiver you must contact Leatha Blanks.
