Training Offerings

Our goal as trainers is to keep you informed on the latest changes in HUD compliance that directly impact your daily tasks.  Please see below for our newest class offerings:

  • Understanding Your New VAWA Compliance Obligations (for HUD Properties) 1.5 hours

In November 2016, HUD published the VAWA Final Rule, implementing housing protections authorized in the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA) in all of HUD’s covered programs.  Did you appropriately react to this new requirement by making the necessary adjustments to your written policies, forms and recertification procedures? 

While some regulatory requirements went into effect on December 16, 2016, owners were provided until June 14, 2017 to implement other requirements like Emergency Transfer Plans.  Do you have a game plan to meet this deadline for implementation? 

This interactive webinar will teach participants what protections and options must be provided to VAWA victims regarding their application or current housing assistance.  Learn what adjustments must be made in the policies, interview, screening, recertification and termination processes to comply with this new regulation.

  • Understanding the Impact of TRACS 2.0.3.A (for HUD Properties) 1.5 hours

HUD plans to release TRACS version 2.0.3.A on August 1, 2017 with an implementation deadline of October 31, 2017. Do you know how this update will affect site-level staff or centralized compliance staff using TRACS software? During this session, we will outline the most significant enhancements that will have a direct impact on your leasing operations to include: 1) Expanded reporting categories; 2) New procedures for social security number reporting for some household members; 3) New subsidy suspension codes available for temporary tenant relocations; and 4) New expanded reporting requirements for ongoing tenant subsidy repayment agreements.
