Notice of Draft Outcome Performance Measurement System for Community Planning and Development Formula Grant Programs; Request for Comments
On September 3, 2003, HUD's Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD) issued CPD Notice 03-09 entitled, ``Development of State and Local Performance Measurements Systems for Community Planning and Development Formula Grant Programs.'' The notice encouraged CPD formula grantees that receive Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), Emergency Shelter Grants (ESG), or the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS Program (HOPWA) assistance to develop and use performance measurement systems. In March 2004, the Council of State Community Development Agencies (COSCDA) convened a meeting with representatives from the National Community Development Association (NCDA), the National Association for County Community Economic Development (NACCED), the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO), the National Council of State Housing Agencies (NCSHA), CPD, HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R), and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to discuss the development of a performance measurement system that would be used by CPD formula grantees to gather information and determine the effectiveness of their programs. That meeting resulted in the formation of a working group composed of representatives from those agencies and associations. The working group met at various times from June until November 2004 and developed the appendix entitled, ``Proposed Outcome Performance Measurement System'' which is attached to this notice. This notice solicits comments from the public and particularly from formula program grantees on the proposed performance measurement system.
