Training Updates:

Staying engaged and informed is extremely important, and we connect everyone in our industry to the tools and resources they need to succeed. Every year we host a Conference & Expo in Southern California, Arizona, and Nevada. Your safety is a top priority and therefore all scheduled Conference and Expos were cancelled for 2020.

We look forward to planning and seeing everyone at the annual Conference and Expo’s in 2021. These events will offer updates in the housing industry, legislative changes, latest training topics, Vendor Expos, and more.

If you are managing a HUD, Tax Credit or a blended property, this webinar is for you!

Learn how to conduct effective and efficient (HUD-required) applicant interviews to ensure assistance is provided to families that are qualified.

The LIHTC program is unforgiving when an unqualified applicant is moved into a housing credit unit. There are no second chances once you have moved them in, which is why a well-conducted interview is insurance against non-compliance. This course covers how to establish rapport, gain trust, and ask the right questions while ensuring a consistent plan to prevent costly fair housing mistakes. It will also teach you valuable tips on interviewing people with various types of disabilities and how to respond to situations and conversations that commonly occur.
