WEBINAR: How to write an (Approvable) AFHMP @ WEBINAR
Dec 17 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Managers should not need a course in statistics or even an MBA to develop an AFHMP that meets the requirements of the current 935.2A form. Using HUD’s instructions, the webinar takes the participants through the process of completing a sample AFHMP including how to obtain and interpret the census data, how to identify community contacts and work with the field office, and how to expedite the approval process. Your trainer has prepared, reviewed and revised dozens of AFHMP’s for national companies and non-profits in numerous states – for HUD, RD and even state agencies that require them. Let her show you how it’s done.

WEBINAR: Section 504 Coordination @ WEBINAR
Jan 8 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Section 504 provides special protections to persons with disabilities who reside in HUD, HOME and RD funded properties. The penalty for non-compliance with Section 504 is loss of all federal funding. The responsibility for coordinating 504 compliance applies to all covered properties – regardless of the number of employees and regardless of whether or not you have one person named as the “504 Coordinator”. This course teaches the duties and responsibilities that properties must fulfill, who must perform them, how to define the specific role of a 504 coordinator when one is required, and how to manage 504 monitoring and compliance efficiently and effectively to prevent complaints and findings.
