Register Today: 2016 Disaster Recovery Grant Reporting (DRGR) Workshops in New York, NY and Austin, TX

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is pleased to announce the 2016 series of Disaster Recovery Grant Reporting (DRGR) Workshops. Similar to past DRGR workshop series, these sessions will provide an overview of the five DRGR modules, as well as the features of DRGR Release 7.11.
Participants will learn:
  • DRGR system functionality
  • Types of information to report
  • How to enter information into DRGR
  • Common DRGR mistakes and answers to questions
  • And more …
Each two day workshop includes a combination of lecture and hands-on case study exercises, allowing participants to practice each task in the system. It is important to participate for the two full days because the training modules build on each other.
This workshop teaches grantees how to tell their community's recovery story, with a specific focus on P.L. 113-2 and 114-113 reporting requirements and DRGR processes for closeout of CDBG-DR grants.
Registration for all DRGR workshops are now open. Registration for each workshop will close when capacity is reached, so please register early.

Who Should Attend?

This training is designed for grantee staff that work regularly with DRGR and are responsible for DRGR functions at the grantee level. National Disaster Resilience grantees and new Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery Program (CDBG-DR) grantees are encouraged to attend.
Due to limited space, registrations will be reviewed. Please do not make non-refundable travel arrangements until you receive a confirmation email from the Class-specific Point of Contact.
Priority enrollment will be given to eligible CDBG-DR grantees that registered for, but could not attend, a previous DRGR Workshop due to space limitations.
For more information and to view other training locations, visit the DRGR Workshop News page.
Please note that submitting a registration request does not guarantee you a seat at the training. You will receive a confirmation email if you are accepted into the training.
