One of four key components to the White House Strong Cities, Strong Communities Initiative (SC2), the SC2 Network is a capacity building program targeted to assisting the nation's most distressed communities. The SC2 Network will function as a central portal to connect distressed places to a wide-array of national and local experts who would help communities address their broad economic challenges. As described in the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the SC2 Network, HUD will make one award of approximately $10 million to an entity or consortium to execute the SC2 Network. The grant will be awarded as a cooperative agreement for a three-year period.
The White House Council on Strong Cities, Strong Communities and PD&R administers this program. In addition to this program, PD&R administers another key component of the White House SC2 initiative—the SC2 Fellowship Placement Pilot Program that places early-to-mid career professionals into distressed communities to work on a broad range of strategic projects.
The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number for this program is 14.534.
On November 28, 2012, a SC2 Network NOFA was posted on Grants.gov announcing the availability of approximately $10 million in FY 2012 to administer the program.
