Going beyond the HB-2-3560

US Housing Consultants’ USDA Rural Development (RD) training seminars provide detailed information vital to ensuring proper compliance. To begin with, USDA/RD provides safe and affordable housing for the nation’s most vulnerable rural area families. To help these critical housing programs remain intact, owners/agents must do their part by operating their properties by USDA/RD regulations. However, maintaining compliance can become a challenge with the ever-changing housing regulations. Above all, failing to maintain compliance can result in dire consequences for the owner and, most importantly, the tenants.

This seminar will review the essential elements of the program, including:

Working with USDA/RD’s Project Requirements

USDA/RD has a wide range of requirements, from physical condition requirements to Section 504/UFAS and marketing policies that protect residents’ rights. Accordingly, we will review tenant grievance procedures, monitoring requirements for USDA, and an overview of Farm Labor Housing.
