Community Development Online (CD Online)

Welcome to the Community Development Online (CDOL) Application System (formerly referred to as CDWAS). Despite the name change, if you have previously applied for LPA funds using our online application, you remain a registered user of the CDOL, and do not need to re-register. If you have not previously used our online application, please refer to the information at the bottom of this page for information on how to become a registered user.

The CDOL may be used to apply for the following programs:

Local Program Administrator (LPA) Programs:

Capital Project Programs:

Registered users:

How to Become a Registered User of the CDOL:

In order to use the CDOL, applicants must be registered in DHCR's Statewide Housing Activity Reporting System (SHARS), and have designated a Security Manager for their organization. The Security Manager will serve as the individual who authorizes and monitors access to the CDOL for the applicant's organization.

If you are a registered SHARS applicant, but you have not previously registered to use the CDOL, you may submit a Security Manager Registration Form to DHCR, which will allow you access to the CDOL. Complete and return the Security Manager Registration Form with an original authorized signature to the address below, and you will be e-mailed a User ID and password with which to access the CDOL.

If your organization has not previously applied to DHCR for funding, you must complete and submit an Applicant Registration Form to the address below so that you may be registered as a SHARS Applicant. The Form contains a section where you may designate a Security Manager for your organization. DHCR staff will register your organization and Security Manager and you will be e-mailed a USER ID and password to access the CDOL.

Completed Security Manager Registration Forms & Applicant Registration Forms must be mailed to:

New York State Division of Housing & Community Renewal
Office of Community Development - MSR Unit
Hampton Plaza - Room 603S
38-40 State St.
Albany, NY 12207

Applicants who used the CDOL (formerly known as CDWAS) to apply for LPA funding in the past will still be registered, and may use the CDOL with the user ID and password previously assigned to them. If you have forgotten your password, you may go the CDOL and enter your USER ID and e-mail address and you will be e-mailed a password. If you have changed your e-mail address since you first registered as a CDOL user, and you cannot remember your password, or if you have forgotten your USER ID, please either call the MSR Unit at (518) 473-2525, or e-mail us at: msr@nyshcr.org for assistance.
