The Briar Club - Houston, TX.
SHCC will present the morning program providing an overview of recent and forthcoming changes to vouchers, contract renewals, and leasing and occupancy requirements. Topics to be covered include: HUD’s new TRACS version, 202D, which will be released in 2013; HUD Notice 2012-14 on Residual Receipts Offsets; the updated Section 8 Renewal Policy; HUD Notice 2013-06 on EIV; HUD Notice 2012-11 on State Lifetime Sex Offender Registration; HUD’s Final Rule outlining federal protections based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and marital status; the updated form HUD-9834; the reauthorized VAWA; and HUD’s new Fair Housing Act Final Rule. SHCC will also provide an update on the status of the PBCA rebid.
Affirmative Fair Housing Marketing Plan
The afternoon class will deal with the new Affirmative Fair Housing Marketing Plan (AFHMP) and how to research for information and will refer to resources and "filling out the application".
The new Affirmative Fair Housing Marketing Plan (AFHMP) is a more detailed and lengthier form that has to be reviewed and approved. This class will help guide you through the form, learn to find the resources needed and help you to think outside the box in marketing your property. Remember this plan must be approved every five years or earlier if there are vacancies on your property.
