Definitions of this notice. HUD solicits expressions of interest by eligible third parties to administer the fellowship program. Qualified eligible third parties that have expressed interest to HUD in administering the fellowship program will be invited to submit full applications for review and grant selection. While there is no match requirement for the fellowship program, HUD recognizes that the scope of work required of the program may exceed the funds that are available for this grant. Therefore, HUD expects that the selected third party will secure additional funding support from other philanthropic organizations to fulfill the scope of work for the fellowship program. (Please see section II.C.1 Leveraging for more information.) Funding for the fellowship program was made available to HUD through a private donation, which HUD is statutorily authorized to accept.
