The Community Compass Technical Assistance and Capacity Building program (Community Compass) represents HUD's integrated technical assistance and capacity building initiative. Community Compass is designed to help HUD's customers navigate complex housing and community development challenges by equipping them with the knowledge, skills, tools, capacity, and systems to implement HUD programs and policies successfully and be more effective stewards of HUD funding. The goal of Community Compass is to empower communities by providing effective technical assistance and capacity building so that successful program implementation is sustained over the long term.

Recognizing that HUD's customers often interact with a variety of HUD programs as they deliver housing or community development services, Community Compass brings together technical assistance investments from across HUD program offices, including but not limited to the Office of Community Planning and Development, the Office of Housing, the Office of Public and Indian Housing, and the Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity. This cross-funding approach allows technical assistance to address the needs of grantees and subgrantees across multiple HUD programs, often within the same engagement, as well as address cross-agency issues.

The competition was announced in the NOFA published on May 19, 2016, (FR-6000-N-06) and closed on July 19, 2016. The NOFA announced the availability of approximately $58 million for HUD Community Compass Technical Assistance and Capacity Building awards. Applications were rated and selected for funding on the basis of selection criteria contained in the NOFA. For the Fiscal Year 2016 competition, $56,497,435.00 was awarded to 22 technical assistance providers nationwide.

In accordance with section 102(a)(4)(C) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Reform Act of 1989 (103 Stat. 1987, 42 U.S.C. 3545), the Department is publishing the awardees and the amounts of the awards in Appendix A to this document.
