HUD will conduct two webinars regarding HOME Participating Jurisdictions’ (PJs’) obligation to assess the capacity of Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs). Both will provide an overview of the FY12 Appropriations Act requirement for PJs to assess and document a CHDO’s development capacity (see Memo, 5/11).
The webinars will describe the process for PJs to certify that a CHDO has development capacity, and HUD's expectations for documenting the information underlying a certification. The webinars will offer tips for CHDOs and PJs in assessing capacity, and for shoring up CHDOs’ staffing, skills, partners or expertise.
The first webinar, on July 10 at 1 pm ET, is billed as one for PJs, but CHDOs might wish to join as well. The second webinar, on July 12 at 1 pm ET, is billed as being for CHDOs.
