The source of the funding is HUD’s 2-year community Compass technical assistance and capacity building program. The successful applicants will be given awards from HUD’s 2022 and 2023 funds.

Community compass serves as a valuable resource to help HUD’s customers navigate complex housing and community development challenges.
