HUD will hold 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.
Two and one-half-day trainings are planned for 24 cities. Dates are set for 19 of the 24 cities, beginning May 13 in Boston. HUD will offer travel and lodging scholarships for CHDOs with budget limitations.
CHDOs can register for May and June workshops at the CHDO Workshop News page at: http://bit.ly/1jXTiTd
