Registration is open for August workshops for Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs) to orient them to changes in the 2013 final rule for the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) program. The sessions will focus on the final rule’s CHDO-specific provisions, and offer strategies to build and demonstrate the capacity an organization needs in order to receive CHDO set-aside funds. The HOME statute requires that 15% of a participating jurisdiction’s HOME allocation be set aside for use by organizations that meet CHDO criteria.
CHDO registration must be approved by the participating jurisdiction (PJ). The training is limited to organizations that have been designated CHDOs by their PJs and have been funded from the CHDO set-aside at least once since January 1, 2011, and organizations that a PJ is actively working toward awarding of HOME funds.
The two and one-half-day trainings in August will be held in Charlotte, Phoenix, Atlanta, and Portland, OR. HUD offers travel and lodging scholarships for CHDOs with budget limitations.
Registration is still open for trainings in July in Houston, Louisville, Salt Lake City, Fort Worth, Kansas City, KS, New York, Denver, Detroit, and Memphis.
