Completing Your Grant

The Community Development Finance Authority (CDFA) conducts a monitoring process that is on-going throughout the implementation of each CDBG grant. This process is comprised of a series of activities that verify the requirements of the agreement between CDFA and the grantee have been completed. Additionally, the grantee is responsible for undertaking its own monitoring of all subrecipients that administer CDBG grant projects.

The closeout process and closeout agreement is the final phase of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) project administration. After activities are completed, funds drawn down, and monitoring issues (if any) are addressed, closeout can begin. This chapter will discuss the steps associated with both the monitoring and grant closeout process. A CDBG Webinar Video on this topic can be viewed by clicking the link.
