Update: Materials are now posted for all webinars in the HCV Utilization Best Practices Webinar Series.


One of HUD's key goals for 2021 is to increase nationwide leasing in the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program. To support this goal, HUD hosted the HCV Utilization Best Practices Webinar Series.

This three-part webinar series was intended to assist public housing authorities (PHAs) with implementing best practices for administrative plans, managing competing priorities, strategically using vouchers, and preventing evictions. Participants learned from panelists and PHAs that have already implemented these best practices.

This webinar series is part of the HCV Utilization Training: Financial Management and Best Practices which includes two self-paced modules in addition to the webinars.

Training Objectives

PHAs learned:

  • Best practices to identify and revise administrative policies and procedures that hinder leasing
  • How to implement fast and effective search/leasing practices and retention policies
  • How to prioritize funding to best meet Special Purpose Voucher (SPV) goals, review new award funding and recurring awards, and manage waiting lists
  • How to strategically and creatively use vouchers to address larger, cross-cutting federal and local initiatives

Who Should Attend?

This training was intended for PHA employees serving HCV programs.
