This two day workshop is important for all CDBG and HOME funds grantees and sub-recipients, and those seeking to access these federal funds for community, housing and economic development initiatives.  The training will provide participants with a comprehensive overview of the CDBG and HOME funds rules and regulations which are essential knowledge to administer and comply with the two programs.  Participants will also learn important program definitions, and discuss eligible activities, and the role and responsibilities of grantees, sub-recipients and contractors.  

Also, class participants will review framework for financially underwriting and selecting CDBG-assisted and HOME-assisted development projects and learn about internal controls procedures and documentation requirements, and discuss program income and timely expenditure of funds under both programs.  In addition, federal cross-cutting regulations related to procurement, Davis-Bacon and affirmative action will be thoroughly explained.   

The workshop will also cover the rules and special benefits associated with CHDOs under the HOME program.  In addition, participants will discuss eligible Owner-occupied Rehab and Homebuyer Assistance activities and Rental Housing Assistance using HOME Funds.   

The course will include both lecture and in class exercises.
