HUD’s Office of Affordable Housing Programs is pleased to offer a two-day intermediate level course on homebuyer development for Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs) in the HOME Program. Homebuyer Development for CHDOs is a course primarily targeted to experienced CHDO representatives. The course is intended to assist existing CHDOs to improve their capacity to develop and successfully sell HOME-assisted for-sale housing. Core topics include the critical role of market assessment and sales planning, underwriting fundamentals including buyer underwriting, and the calculation and reconciliation of sales proceeds being returned as program income or retained as CHDO proceeds. The course also addresses the conversion of unsold units to rental, the role of lease purchase, and how a PJ's recapture/resale policies can impact marketability.

Who Should Attend?

This is an intermediate level course, intended as a focused session on homebuyer development for CHDOs and is best suited for staff of established CHDOs or with varying levels of experience in for-sale housing. It is also suitable for non-profit organizations working with state or local Participating Jurisdictions (PJs) to achieve CHDO status and funding for homebuyer projects. PJ staff is welcome to register, but priority will be given to CHDO staff. PJ staff registration requests will not be confirmed until it is determined that space is available. Please note that submitting a registration request does not guarantee you a seat at the training. Due to limited space, registrations will be reviewed and approved prior to confirmation. You will receive a confirmation email if you are accepted into the training. Please do not make non-refundable travel arrangements until you receive a confirmation email from the Training Point of Contact.
