Today's Federal Register notice announces that HUD has posted its FY 2014 General Section on and​hudportal/​HUD?​src=​/​program_​offices/​administration/​grants/​fundsavail. The General Section describes the requirements that are applicable to all of HUD FY 2014 Discretionary Program NOFAs.

The General Section also provides summary information regarding HUD's Strategic Goals and FY 2014 NOFA priorities. HUD encourages applicants for funding in FY2014 to undertake programs and projects that contribute to HUD's strategic goals and NOFA priorities. HUD's NOFA priorities are designed to align grantee efforts with HUD's Strategic Goals and the Department's Mission. Applicants that undertake activities that result in achievement of specific NOFA priorities are eligible to receive priority points in the rating of their application.

Each program NOFA will describe additional procedures and requirements that apply to the individual program, including a description of the eligible applicants, eligible activities, threshold requirements, cross-program requirements such as nondiscrimination, environmental protection, and any additional program requirements or limitations. To adequately address all of the application requirements for any program, HUD encourages potential applicants to carefully read and respond to both the General Section and the applicable Program NOFA. NOFA priority points will be considered only if the application already meets or exceeds the NOFA's threshold for funding.

HUD will post its FY 2014 program NOFAs on and as they become available. Today's notice is intended to provide prospective applicants for HUD's competitive funding with the opportunity to become familiar with the General Section of HUD's FY2014 NOFAs, in advance of publication of any FY2014 NOFAs.
