Despite the recent upheaval in the housing market, the need for homeownership opportunities continues. The HOME program is an invaluable tool for state and local Participating Jurisdictions (PJs) interested in providing affordable homeownership. Effective HOME-funded homebuyer programs can be designed as win-win partnerships with the private sector, to meet the needs of the HOME-assisted buyer.

This two-day course is designed to provide an understanding of the complexities of underwriting and lending for homeownership and how best to use HOME program resources for that purpose. The course emphasizes solid PJ underwriting and focuses on market analysis, foreclosure intervention, prevention and sustainability.

The course will be taught by Monte Franke, an experienced trainer with particular expertise in the HOME program and in underwriting.

Fitting the Pieces Together is available, free of charge, to all state and local HOME PJs and state HOME program grantees.

Space is limited---register today!
