PHAs often use HOME funds as an additional funding source to fund a variety of activities, especially PHAs going through a RAD transition. The compliance requirements for the HOME program can be confusing and particularly complex. In this session, HOME experts Sheryl Putnam and Samantha Sowards will delve into how to maintain program compliance with the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) after your project is built.
The Housing Conference, presented by NMA, will spotlight three tracks: an executive track, a regulatory track, and a best practices track. Go here to view a list of the session descriptions that have been published so far.
