Print ShareThis

January 17 - February 7, 2018



HUD's Office of Affordable Housing Programs (OAHP) will again offer the virtual delivery of the Building HOME training series. The series will include 4 weekly 2-hour sessions on Wednesdays from 1:00 - 3:00 PM EST 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 (HOME) Program, including the latest requirements codified in the July 24, 2013 HOME Final Rule. This is an introduction to the HOME Program inclusive of all of the new regulatory changes, but in a modified format for a virtual delivery. 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 on February 8, 2018 as the first 30 minutes of the Office Hour session to allow the full February 7th session to focus on Rental Housing.

Note: This is a four-week webinar series presentation of the Building HOME training. Sessions take place via webinar technology on the dates listed below. Office Hour sessions will be from 1:00 - 2:00 PM EST the day following the Webinar; for example Office Hours will be held from 1:00 - 2:00 PM EST on January 18 following the January 17 webinar.

Participants are expected to attend all four sessions in the series. Sessions will be recorded and posted to allow registered participants who may have a scheduling conflict during a webinar session the opportunity to makeup the session. Participants must have registered as instructed below for completion of the series to qualify as the pre-requisite for future HOME certification. Although some PJ staff may participate in a group setting, each participant will need to register individually as instructed below for completion of the series and to satisfy the requirement of Building HOME as a prerequisite for all HOME topical courses.

Who Should Attend?

Building HOME Webinar Series is relevant to Participating Jurisdiction staff, Subrecipients, and CHDOs. This webinar is limited to 650 participants and registration for this training will close 24 hours before the webinar begins.
