Abt Expands Housing Impact with New Technical Assistance Awards
Rockville, Md. – Abt Associates has won a three year, $16.8 million cooperative agreement grant to continue building on our work for the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) technical assistance programs.
HUD’s technical assistance programs help grantees, public housing agencies and tribes navigate the many housing programs and services HUD provides. Abt and our partners have provided tens of thousands of hours of technical assistance to more than 180 programs and jurisdictions over the last few years, in programs administered by the offices of Community Planning and Development, Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, Housing and Public and Indian Housing.
“As HUD releases funding and policy guidance—informed by Abt’s research—to local communities around the country, we’ll provide technical assistance to help the agency tailor program delivery and system responses to local needs” said Abt project lead Brooke Spellman. “The award provides Abt with a great opportunity to broaden the impact we’re making in homelessness, community development, affordable housing and disaster recovery.”
