Conquering USDA/RD Compliance

Training for USDA Rural Development Compliance

Training for USDA Rural Development Compliance

USDA’s Rural Development Housing Service programs provide affordable, safe, decent, and sanitary housing to our nation’s most vulnerable populations living in rural areas.

In order to help these vital housing programs, remain intact, owner/agents need to do their part by operating their RD properties in accordance with RD regulations.

However, with the ever-changing housing regulations, maintaining compliance can become a challenge. Yet, failing to maintain compliance can result in dire consequences for the owner, the project and, most importantly, can negatively affect the tenants.

Created by Amanda Lee Gross, the “Conquering Rural Development Compliance” is a two-and-a-half-day course specially designed to assist affordable housing professionals in conquering RD project compliance. Amanda Lee delves deep into Rural Development’s laws and regulations, while also providing real-world examples with practical application. This engaging and interactive session utilizes numerous examples and exercises to ensure attendees complete the session with a thorough comprehension of how not only how to maintain project compliance, but why it is so important to do so. An optional certification exam is offered on the third day of this course.
