Understanding HOME-ARP Preferences, Referral Methods, and Allocation Plan Requirements Webinar
May 17, 2022 | 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM EDT
HUD's Office of Affordable Housing Programs (OAHP) conducted a webinar to review the HOME Investment Partnerships American Rescue Plan Program (HOME-ARP) requirements related to establishing preferences, referral methods, and allocation plan requirements. CPD Notice 21-10: Requirements for the HOME-ARP Program establishes requirements for implementing preferences, limitations, and referral methods for HOME-ARP programs, as well as the required elements of a HOME-ARP allocation plan.
This webinar familiarized HOME Participating Jurisdictions (PJs) and other program partners (Continuum of Care (CoC) Programs, homeless service providers, local housing providers, and public housing agencies) with requirements, as well as reviewed the requirements for allocation plans and provided tips on developing complete and compliant plans. OAHP also introduced an updated Sample Allocation Plan Template designed to clarify requirements and provides useful tips and walks through new explanatory guidance on preferences, limitations, and referral methods.
Participants were able to learn about:
- Establishing preferences or limitations among the HOME-ARP qualifying populations
- Permissible client referral methods and how they are affected by the use of preferences
- Avoiding pitfalls related to consultation, public participation, and the content of their allocation plans
Who Should Attend?
This webinar was designed for HOME PJs preparing to administer an allocation of HOME-ARP, CoC partners, homeless service providers, local housing providers, and public housing agencies.
