Dear Colleagues:  

As you may know, the new DD Suite Version 5.0 was scheduled for release October 1, 2014.  Recognizing that Councils will be completing PPRs and State Plans through December 31st, we have decided to delay the cutover to DD Suite 5.0 until January.  Though most templates in Version 5.0 will work the same, they will look somewhat different, and we want to avoid any additional burden on Councils. 
We are continuing to develop the new DD Suite 5.0 User Help modules and will have them completed and sent to you over the next couple of months.  We will also be scheduling webinars to walk users through the system and help you prepare your Council staff and grantees to use DD Suite 5.0.
Thank you for your patience and support.
