CPD Funding Matrix and Dashboard Reports Posted

The CPD Funding Matrix and Dashboard Reports, as of September 4, 2018, have been posted to HUD Exchange.
These reports provide funding information for each city and state that receive CPD program funds, including Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Continuum of Care (CoC), Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), HOME, Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), and Housing Trust Fund (HTF).
Reports detail the size of each grant received over the past several years, as well as the total amount of funds currently available to be spent on affordable housing and community and economic development activities.
CPD Funding Matrix Note: Based on the requirement that a grantee uses the adjusted ratio for determining its compliance with the CDBG timeliness standard of having no more than 1.5 times its annual allocation in its adjusted line of credit balance 60 days prior to the end of its current program year, HUD is in the process of updating the CDBG recapture risk column in the CPD Funding Matrix report, revised calculation is pending. In the meantime, a grantee wanting to know how much CDBG funding it may have at risk of recapture can do the following simple calculation:
{Adjusted line of credit (LOC) balance [LOC + program income + revolving loan fund balance(s)]} – {Annual allocation for current program year x 1.5} = Amount of potential reduction in next year’s grant (not to exceed actual grant amount)
Expenditures (all recipients): within 24 months from the date HUD signs the grant agreement.
Grantees with additional questions should contact their local field office.

ServicePoint ART + Java Update

Mozilla is about to switch over to supporting only Version 60 of Firefox ESR. Version 60 does not support the Java plug-in
and they will no longer support V52 which did support the Java plug-in.

Per the Mozilla blog: "ESR 52 will be the last ESR release that supports legacy add-ons. Support for ESR 52 officially ends
on August 2018." The Java plug-in is considered a legacy add-on by Mozilla.

Going forward, the only browser that supports the editing of ART reports is the current version of Internet Explorer 11.
Internet Explorer 11 also does not support old versions of Java, i.e. version 7. We recommend the below steps to enable the ability to continue editing ART reports for adhoc users:

1) Uninstall Java 7 from the computer
2) Download and install Java 8 32-bit edition (current version) from Java website
3) Reboot Computer
4) Open Windows Control Panel
5) Double-left-click on Java icon
6) Left-click on "Security" tab
7) Set security level to "High" if it isn't already set to "High"
8) Edit "Exception Site List" to include the following URLs:
a) Your ServicePoint URL

The second URL is used to access ART. Please also make sure that your pop-up blocker is either disabled or has these
sites added to the pop-up blocker's exception list.

Please note that ART viewers can view/schedule ART reports without having the Java plug-in installed on their computer.
Please contact your CCA if you have any questions
