Become a True HUD Compliance Expert

Achieving Section 8 Compliance requires constant training. The rules are complex and change frequently. US Housing Consultants’ HUD Compliance course helps housing professionals develop expertise and stay compliant with the program.

Learning About HUD’s Multifamily Housing Programs

At the center of HUD’s Compliance Policies is household eligibility. During the Conquering HUD Compliance Seminar, you will learn about tenant selection plans, working with income and assets to determine eligibility, and calculating rent.

We’ll also cover:
• Civil Rights and Nondiscrimination Requirements
• Lease Requirements
• Recertifications, Unit Transfers, and Interim Certifications
• Gross Rent Charges
• Termination of Assistance and Termination of Tenancy
• Enterprise Income Verification System (EIV)

Integrating HOTMA into HUD’s Housing Programs

Multifamily Housing (MFH) owners must fully understand how implementing the many program changes brought about by the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act of 2016 (HOTMA) will affect them. We can tell you all about it!
The new rules include massive changes to the requirements for determining tenant eligibility and tenant rent for HUD Multi-family housing.

While the deadline for implementation and full compliance has been moved up a year to January 1, 2025, owners ready for the new HOTMA requirements can put the changes into effect as soon as January 1, 2024. US Housing Consultants can help you do it right.

I have had the great pleasure of leading a couple of classes with Amanda Gross – trainer extraordinaire at US Housing Consultants. I feel like I’m the “old guard” watching over the “rising star”. Amanda’s classes are full of necessary information and she has a knack for delivering compliance content in such a way that you will never be bored. If you get a chance, be sure to join her for a LIHTC or HUD training.
