Amanda Lee Gross developed the “Conquering USDA Rural Development Compliance” course to assist affordable housing professionals in conquering USDA project compliance. Amanda Lee delves deep into Rural Development’s laws and regulations, while also providing real-world examples with practical application. This engaging and interactive session utilizes numerous examples and exercises to ensure attendees complete the session with a thorough comprehension of how not only how to maintain project compliance, but why it is so important to do so.
