|Register Today: 2018 Building HOME Webinar Series III – Registration Open|
|HUD’s Office of Affordable Housing Programs (OAHP) will again offer the virtual delivery of the Building HOME training series. Each series will include 4 weekly 2-hour sessions on Wednesdays from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM Eastern time followed with a 1-hour Office Hour session on Thursday to review homework and answer questions related to that week’s materials. This course is a prerequisite for all other HOME topical courses. The virtual delivery of Building HOME provides an overview of the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), including the latest requirements codified in the HOME Final Rule. Participants will become familiar with all program activities, including homeowner and homebuyer, rental housing, tenant-based rental assistance, and Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) activities. Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) will be presented during the first half of the final Office Hour for each series to allow the Session 4 to focus on Rental Housing.
These webinar series count for HOME training points for the 2018 HOME Application. Even if OHFA funds all of the applications received at the July Board Meeting, they should have around $2M left to award at the September Board Meeting. Deadline for consideration for the September meeting is June 28th. Only the June webinar series would be completed in time for a HOME award in September.
