Policy Action Committee Meeting: May 2014
After December’s Policy Action Committee meeting, where new HOME rules were reviewed and issues for community land trusts were identified, the Network has been working with Laura Schwartz and Hannah Cassidy at Reno & Cavanaugh, PLLC to analyze new HOME rules, seek clarification from HUD, and issue guidance for our members.
During this webinar, Emily Thaden reviewed the actions the Network has taken to address HOME issues. Laura Schwartz reviewed HOME guidance that Reno & Cavanaugh prepared to date and addressed practitioners’ questions or problems pertaining to the HOME program. Additional policy updates, including housing finance reform, were also reviewed.
