ICF International (NASDAQ:ICFI), a leading provider of consulting services and technology solutions to government and commercial clients, has been awarded two grants by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide capacity-building services for the Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD). The grants have a total value of $11.1 million and terms of three years each.
Under this grant, ICF will support HUD’s CPD grantees and their nonprofit partners on state, county, and local levels across a range of activities, including: assessing capacity gaps and technical assistance needs; directing technical assistance to build skills, creating procedures and systems, and improving program operations; developing integrated website and associated web tools; providing webinars, courses, and other self-directed and group-learning opportunities; and writing a range of tools and products designed to assist with program design, implementation, and management. In addition, ICF will help improve local homelessness data collection and reporting systems called Homeless Management Information Systems.
“We are very pleased to continue our more than 25-year history of supporting HUD CPD in building state, local, and nonprofit capacity to undertake community development activities,” said Marsha Tonkovich, senior vice president for ICF International. “Technical assistance and training activities enable grantees and their partners to develop the skills and create the systems needed to plan, finance, and build sustainable, affordable, vibrant communities. We are honored to be a part of these efforts and look forward to working with HUD and with public agencies and nonprofit organizations to revitalize communities nationwide.”
