EIV is not some new type of Drone! EIV has become a part of our daily lives at HUD properties. It can be a great tool, or a time-consuming headache that leads to MOR findings and sanctions. Take this basic overview to understand how the EIV system works, and how to use it in an effective and efficient manner.

The purpose of the Enterprise Income Verification (EIV) function within the Real Estate Assessment (REAC) Center is to ensure that limited Federal resources are available to serve as many eligible families as possible by reducing the high incidence of program errors and to improve the integrity and accuracy of information contained in the PIC and EIV systems.

Topics covered include: How EIV works; EIV Security; gaining access to EIV; EIV policies; how and when to print reports; reading, interpreting and reconciling reports (including the Income Discrepancy Report); and showing compliance. Hands on exercises and case studies will be used.

Remember to bring your pen and paper to this class.

Fair Housing for Maintenance @ The Washington Inn
Jun 26 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

Make sure everyone on your team receives up-to-the-minute Fair Housing training!

This program offers TWO sessions. You may register yourself, and your staff, for the appropriate AM and/or PM session.

AM Session – For Maintenance Staff
This two-hour session will help Maintenance staff understand their important role in providing Fair Housing. Residents deal with the office at the beginning of the tenancy, but after moving on site, maintenance usually has more exposure to residents and their problems on an on-going basis. 80% of Fair Housing cases come from in-place residents! Cases are often filed based on poor service, but may also be based on inconsistent service (including being too nice and showing a preference for some residents), lack of communication, or saying the wrong thing… however innocent your intentions may be! What you don’t know can cost YOU, as well as your property and your company, BIG money.

PM Session – For Managers & Admin Staff
Fair Housing is the most complex, serious, and costly issue for the rental industry today. Every person on your staff has personal liability in a complaint — as well as subjecting his or her supervisors, management company and owner to serious penalties. We will help you recognize your basic day-to-day fair housing responsibilities and show you how to respond appropriately to the many situations you may face on your property.

About the Speaker: Shawn Bankson is a partner in the Northern California office of Kimball, Tirey & St. Johnn LLP. His legal practice specializes in fair housing matters. Additionally, he is a frequent trainer for many associations and management companies throughout the state of California in the areas of fair housing and landlord/tenant law.

Snacks will be provided. Lunch is on your own.
