HUD/CPD RIN: 2506-AC39 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Updating Accounting Requirements for the Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) Program (FR-5797) 
Abstract:

This rule revises the CDBG regulations to align CDBG accounting methods to the grant accounting system specified in HUD’s handbook on CDBG grants. The rule requires grantees, beginning with fiscal year 2015 grants, to track their obligations and expenditures of funds for each specific grant year. This rule makes the necessary regulatory changes to conform to the grant accounting system, such as the time periods of affected grants, records retention, and the calculation of the cap on administrative and planning expenses. These changes are necessary to effectively implement the accounting changes.
