5 OneCPD Overview  OneCPD is a cross program, place-based approach to providing technical assistance and capacity building to CPD grantees and stakeholders and replaces the traditional “program-specific” approach to TA delivery.  OneCPD focuses on skills, planning, and innovation to build grantee capacity and help grantees comply with regulatory requirements.  Work tasked under Demand-Response model. 5

6 OneCPD Overview What is Technical Assistance?  Guidance which enables HUD’s customers (grantees, subrecipients, CHDOs or other non-profit organizations, project sponsors, CoCs, etc.) and staff to overcome a lack of specific skills or knowledge of the associated HUS programs and, by doing so, results in the successful performance and compliance of those programs. 6
