HUD's Office of Affordable Housing Programs (OAHP) is again offering a “Building HOME” webinar training series. The training series will provide an overview of the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), including eligible program activities related to homeowners and homebuyers, rental housing, Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA), and Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) activities.
The Building HOME webinar series could be helpful for advocates and nonprofit community-based developers, particularly CHDOs. Each webinar training series is limited to 500 participants and registration will close 24 hours before the webinars begin.
Each webinar training series will include four weekly two-hour sessions on Wednesdays from 1:00-3:00 p.m. ET, followed by one-hour office hour sessions on Thursdays to review homework and answer questions related to each week's materials. For example, office hours will be held from 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET on March 14 following the March 13 webinar.
Series II will take place on March 13, March 20, March 27, and April 3. Series III will repeat the content on May 1, May 8, May 15, and May 22. TBRA is presented during the first half of the final “office hour” for each series to allow the fourth session to focus on rental housing. (Series I has already taken place.)
Sessions will be recorded and posted to allow registered participants who may have a scheduling conflict during a webinar session the opportunity to make up the session.
