Additional Information

Please note, your request to register for the class does not guarantee confirmation. You will receive confirmation email entitled “Confirmation: Basically CDBG” once your enrollment has been approved. Please do not make any non-refundable travel arrangements until you receive an email confirmation notice. HUD cannot be responsible for penalties incurred due to cancelled arrangements.
After each grantee’s first registration request, additional CDBG staff will be waitlisted and will only be permitted to register if the training does not reach capacity. Due to the limited availability of training seats, for-profit corporations, consultants, and consulting firms are not permitted to register for Basically CDBG classes. CDBG grant administrators and units of general local government receiving State CDBG funds may be permitted to attend on a case by case basis.  
The first round of registration for the Atlanta, GA training closes on March 8, 2017. HUD will review the registration request list at this time and send out the first round of confirmations. Registrations may be accepted after that date, but we cannot guarantee that there will still be available space.
