Regulatory Reporting Requirements for the Indian Community Development Block Grant Program
Document Number: E9-25569
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-10-23
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This proposed rule would revise the reporting requirements for the Indian Community Development Block Grant (ICDBG) program.

Currently, ICDBG grantees are required to report on these activities on a semi-annual basis, with reports being due to HUD on April 10 and October 10 of each year. Second, the proposed rule would require ICDBG grantees to use the Logic Model form developed as part of HUD's Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) process. Requiring use of the Logic Model would conform ICDBG reporting requirements to those of other HUD competitive funding programs and would help ensure uniformity in the information provided by ICDBG grantees on performance goals, thereby facilitating the evaluation of grantee performance.
