Core-Development Manual

The Core-Development Manual (CDM) defines the Department's requirements and expectations related to:
  • Project due-diligence
  • Planning
  • Design
  • Rehabilitation
  • Construction
These requirements apply to housing developments funded through one or more Department programs. The CDM differs from the Department's funding allocation processes and program guidance materials. The CDM focuses specifically on Core-Development activities including:
  • Physical planning,
  • Creation,
  • Modification, and
  • Delivery of housing funded by the Department.
The CDM applies to housing projects that are seeking new funding from the department. It also applies to projects involving modifications or additions to properties that already exist within the Department's Asset Management Portfolio. It applies even when such projects are not seeking new funding from the Department.
