WEBINAR – Housing Counseling Series, Part 1: Offering SHIP Housing Education and Counseling
February 12, 2018 - 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
SHIP administrators may benefit from establishing many local partnerships. This includes engaging the expertise of local nonprofits and other who offer counseling and education on several housing topics. The first part of this two-webinar series teaches SHIP administrators how to partner with HUD approved counseling agencies to provide education and one-on-one assistance to the SHIP eligible households who want SHIP purchase assistance. Equipping buyers with this knowledge helps increase the possibility that buyers will have success with homeownership. The trainings will provide an overview of available housing counseling resources, including an introduction to SHIP housing counseling funds. The following activities will be discussed: helping households find a home to buy, locating an affordable rental, and maintaining homes.
