The Office of Native American Programs (ONAP) in HUD’s Office of Public and Indian Housing administers the program. 1. Single Purpose Grants. Projects funded by the ICDBG program must meet the primary objective, defined at 24 CFR 1003.2, to principally benefit low- and moderate-income persons. Consistent with this objective, not less than 70 percent of the expenditures of each Single Purpose grant shall be for activities that meet the regulatory criteria at 24 CFR 1003.208 for: Area Benefit Activities; Limited Clientele Activities; Housing Activities; or Job Creation or Retention Activities. 2. Imminent Threat Grants.Imminent Threat (IT) means a problem which if unresolved or not addressed will have an immediate negative impact on public health or safety (24CFR § 1003.4) These grants are intended to alleviate or remove a threat to health or safety that requires an immediate solution as described at 24CFR part 1003,subpart E. Due to the urgency and immediacy of the threat, projects funded must be completed within 12 months of the grant award, unless there is good cause for not being able to do so. An application for IT funds is not required to be submitted by the deadline established in this NOFA. IT applications are funded on a first-come first-served basis until the amount set aside for this purpose is exhausted. Current Closing Date for Applications: October 14, 2015.
