As a partner in the recovery process, the GLO is committed to providing Technical Assistance and Training to its subrecipients. With current CDBG-DR allocations spanning impacted counties with over 75% of the state’s population, the number of communities participating as subrecipients continues to grow. The GLO continues to conduct kickoff and informational meetings with subrecipients regarding 2015 and 2016 Floods and Hurricane Harvey funds. 

In the upcoming weeks, the GLO will be developing training materials on the most important topics for administering CDBG-DR funds. These topics include:

  • Uniform Relocation Act 
  • Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing
  • Davis Bacon
  • Financial Management
  • Procurement
  • Program Income
  • Section 3
