The Mississippi HUD Office recently hosted a workshop in Jackson on Financial Management for jurisdictions that receive HOME funds. The Community Planning and Development (CPD) division of HUD sponsored the workshop to provide HOME grantees, their sub-recipients and sub-grantees a comprehensive overview of an effective financial management system, financial management requirements that apply to the HOME program, as well as unique features of the HOME program including recaptured funds, Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) proceeds and program income. The workshop training was very well received.
Linda Tynes (CPD) Director, and the local CPD team hosted the event which was attended by over thirty representatives of Mississippi’s HOME participating jurisdictions, their grantees and HOME recipients from several other states.
