* HUD Notice CPD-13-010, issued December 13, 2013: Congress has not completed the appropriations process for HUD's FY2014 appropriation. At this time, HUD cannot predict when its FY2014 appropriations bill will be enacted and when it will be able to announce FY2014 allocation amounts. Similarly, HUD cannot provide estimated FY2014 allocation amounts for grantees to use for planning purposes in developing action plans. HUD advises grantees to not submit its consolidated plan/action plan until the FY2014 formula allocations have been announced. Therefore, the dates above may change.
