We then discuss the project occupancy requirements on family, elderly and congregate properties, and how to calculate income (7CFR .560.153 refers to 24 CFR 5.609 & 11) and assets along with allowable deductions and determining rent.

Day two covers the Recertification process for annual recerts, recerts due because of income or occupancy changes, and ineligible tenants. Lease requirements, tenant warning and termination concludes day two with a final review of the course.

The Housing Compliance Manager for RD Exam (HCM-R) is an open book exam with 100 questions. You will be given up to three hours to complete the exam on the second day and will need a score of 67% or higher to pass. Those who pass will receive their HCM-R designation. Read more...
