*Registration now available for: Phoenix, AZ; Miami, FL; Orlando, FL; New York, NY; and Fresno, CA. See below for registration links for all workshops*

Overview:
HUD is pleased to announce a series of 10 computer-based DRGR workshops throughout the nation. These workshops will provide NSP grantees with the opportunity to improve understanding of DRGR concepts by walking them through the five DRGR modules and highlighting key actions such as reporting accomplishments, drawing funds and using MicroStrategy to generate reports. The workshops will also include training on the new system features in Release 7.3, most notably related to the changes in how Program Income is managed. The workshops will be delivered as a combination of lecture and hands-on case study exercises, allowing participants to practice each task in the system.  The training will also review common DRGR missteps and questions, and teach grantees how to tell their community's NSP story. For more information on the workshop, please review the detailed workshop description.

The workshops will take place between June and August 2012 at computer lab facilities that accommodate up to 30 participants. The workshops will be conducted over the course of two days, starting at 8:30am and ending at 4:30pm each day.
