Collection: Capital Fund Program


In the Capital Fund Program seminar, you'll gain practical knowledge through extensive review and discussion of the capital fund final rule. Participants will focus on melding capital planning into the PHA plan process, as well as how to use CFP funds for new construction and mixed finance development. In addition, this seminar includes information about new guidelines affecting management improvements, planning and reporting requirements, total development cost limitations, and other important changes. The class will discuss various scenarios, using a variety of techniques to enhance the learning experience. We recommend that CEOs (Executive Directors), CFOs (Finance Directors) and planning staff join modernization colleagues at this seminar, since the agency's mission, strategic goals, and objectives require a collaborative approach by policy staff as well as the technical modernization staff.

This two-day training is a comprehensive overview of all elements of the capital fund final rule and other essential related capital fund strategies relevant to public housing. Content areas include:

  • Overview of the major changes in the CFP final rule
