Housing Choice Homeownership Training session set for May 22-23 at SHA
Realtors, mortgage lenders, counseling agencies and federal and local housing officials aiming to help Rental Choice Voucher recipients buy homes are welcome to a training session running May 22-23 at Springfield Housing Authority’s offices at 60 Congress St. in Springfield, MA.
The session, sponsored by the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials, will guide those with U.S. Housing and Urban Development rental vouchers, known as Section 8s, to buy homes and keep their rental assistance intact.
The session will cover current HUD Housing Choice Voucher Homeownership program guidelines. Participants will learn about guidelines and options to implement and manage a successful HCV Homeownership program in your area; accurately determine family eligibility, verification requirements, develop partnerships to succeed, review hands-on case studies to accurately determine assistance calculations and more.
Groups and agencies who may potentially be involved in such home purchases are welcome to attend the two-day session, which will run from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the first day, and 8:30 a.m. to 4: 30 p.m. on the second day.
The first day’s program will include an overview of Housing Choice Voucher Homeownership program regulations, the development process, developing administrative plans, finding successful homebuyers, issues, barriers, resources and partnerships, and case students.
The second day will include the recertification process, the mortgage lending process, the interface of the voucher with the mortgage, data management, quality assurance, a review and a proficiency test.
