Kentucky’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Certified Administrator Training was held in Frankfort on June 22-25. There was a large class of twenty-five students. The training is held each year if there is sufficient interest. The training provides future administrators with a strong foundation in the rules and requirements of administering a CDBG grant.

The training is based on the CDBG Handbook (provided at the training session) and covers among other items: Project Administration & Financial Management Responsibilities, Environmental Review Requirements, Procurement and Contracting, Labor Standards and Construction Management, Acquisition and Relocation Requirements and Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity Regulations. Kelly Price and Les Warner of ICF International conducted the training. A list of those completing the 3-day training session and the half day test is provided below.
