Additional Information

Please note that final enrollment confirmations will not be sent out until approximately one week after the registration closes. We cannot provide waitlist status until we receive and process all requests. Please hold on making any nonrefundable travel plans until you receive an official confirmation that you have secured a seat in the course. HUD cannot be responsible for penalties incurred due to cancelled arrangements.

To accommodate high demand for this training – registrants from grantees that have sent a representative to a Basically CDBG training in the last year will be waitlisted. After each grantee’s first registrant, additional CDBG staff will be waitlisted and will only be permitted to register if the training does not reach capacity. Due to the limited availability of training seats, for-profit corporations, consultants, and consulting firms are not permitted to register for Basically CDBG classes. CDBG grant administrators may be permitted to attend on a case by case basis.

Registration for the Milwaukee, WI training closes on July 14, 2017. HUD will review the registration list within approximately one week and send out confirmations and notifications of waitlist status.
