HUD has postponed the launch of version 3.0 of the Capital Needs Assessment until November 9th. The data transfer period has been extended to November 6th. 

HUD has postponed the launch for version 3.0 of the Capital Needs Assessment (CNA) e-Tool until November 9th. Originally slated for October 13th, the CNA e-Tool team observed issues with the tool during final confirmation testing and will release a fix prior to the launch. The data transfer period has been extended to November 6th. 

Ahead of the launch of the web-based CNA e-Tool, HUD reminds providers to do the following:

  • Obtain access, to enable you to access the CNA e-Tool with your M-ID
  • Attend the Getting Started and User Basics webinars or viewed the archived versions (available on the CNA e-Tool Webpage or on the HUD Exchange)
  • Validate any unfinished Assessment Tool file in the Submission Portal before the Data Transfer Period ends on October 9th at 11:59 pm Eastern Time.

When the new system is LIVE, HUD will send out an announcement email to all users. For further technical information, please email CNAeTool@hud.gov.
