NAHMA HUD Update: HUD to host webinar on new CNA e-Tool

January 12, 2017

Next week, HUD will host a web seminar providing an overview of the new Capital Needs Assessment (CNA) e-Tool released last week. The seminar will take place on Thursday, January 19th, from 3:00 – 4:30 pm EST.

To join the audio conference only, dial +1-415-655-0002, or click here to find global call-in numbers. A second conference with identical content will be hosted on Tuesday, January 24th, from 11-12:30 EST. Both webinars will be available for viewing later.

The e-Tool is the result of a collaboration between HUD and USDA to create a standard, automated, electronic process for CNAs available for use by all multifamily industry participants. Announced last Friday, the CNA e-Tool will be available for voluntary use beginning on January 15, 2017. Starting July 1, 2017, use of the e-Tool will become mandatory for each capital needs assessment prepared for a HUD multifamily property.
