HUD released in late October information regarding the CY 2018 annual extension funding renewals for grant-based service coordinator contracts that will again be processed through GrantSolutions as was for the CY 2017 process. The processing of the renewals will be accomplished through a streamlined process which applies to all grants that were submitted and awarded in GrantSolutions under the CY 2017 cycle. The Application and Submission Instructions and a GrantSolutions QuickSheet for adding documents to Grant Notes in GrantSolutions have been provided by HUD.

Those that do not currently have access to their Service Coordinator grant in GrantSolutions will also need the two-page GrantSolutions Grantee User Account Request Form.

The deadline for submitting the CY 2018 Service Coordinator Grant extension renewal in GrantSolutions is November 20, 2017.

HUD has indicated that there will be no extensions to this deadline and that the process as outlined in the above-linked instructions must be followed in order to not jeopardize the receipt of 2018 extension funding. The required information is to be submitted on the same grant application record that was established in GrantSolutions for 2017.
