Advanced HOME with Underwriting Course
Advanced HOME (2 Days)
The National Community Development Association (NCDA) is pleased to announce the delivery of a two-day Advanced course focusing on the HOME Investment Partnerships Program. This course provides a follow-up to the HOME Basics course with a more detailed look at actual HOME-funded projects, including grant agreements, initial and ongoing compliance, and the use of innovative partnerships to more effectively address housing needs with HOME funds.
The course begins with a brief review of HOME requirements, followed by a hands-on review of housing data resources used to identify HOME-funded activities that best meet the needs of local communities. Participants will delve into the details of different types of HOME activities, including using HOME with Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC), HOME and Permanent Supportive Housing for Individuals experiencing homelessness, CHDO projects, homebuyer programs, and rental projects. Examples are based on experiences of NCDA member-practitioners.
Course participants will receive a manual that includes HOME resources, and sample HOME policies, grant agreements, and compliance checklists. Group exercises are built into the course, designed to increase networking among attendees, and sharing of actual HOME experiences.
NCDA’s Advanced HOME has been developed for practitioners who have completed HOME Basics and have two or more years of HOME experience.
HOME Underwriting/Subsidy Layering (1 Day)
The third day’s session will focus on the new HOME Underwriting/Subsidy Layering requirements and because HUD is going to be requiring CDBG grantees to establish CDBG underwriting policies/guidelines, how the HOME Guidelines may serve as the basis for establishing CDBG underwriting guidelines. The course is based upon the latest guidance from HUD on how to conduct underwriting and subsidy layering for homebuyer and rental development projects.
