The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD’s) Office of Community Planning and Development issued a notice with instructions for when jurisdictions should submit their fiscal year 2019 national Housing Trust Fund (HTF) allocation plans. CPD-19-01 also includes revised submission dates for the Community Development Block Grants, Emergency Solutions Grants, HOME Investment Partnership and Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS programs. HUD will not execute a HTF grant agreement until it receives the agency’s HTF allocation plan with the actual HTF allocation. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac recently announced that $245 million would be available for the HTF in 2019 and HUD anticipates announcing each state’s HTF allocation April.
