Registration is open for July 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.
The two and one-half-day July trainings will be held in Louisville, Houston, Salt Lake City, Fort Worth, Kansas City, KS, New York, Detroit, and Memphis. HUD offers travel and lodging scholarships for CHDOs with budget limitations. More workshops are scheduled in other cities throughout the summer.
