Additional Information

Please note that final enrollment confirmations will not be sent out until approximately one week after the registration closes. The confirmation email you will receive for enrolling and submitting your learning request form does not guarantee you will be placed in the course. We cannot provide waitlist status until we receive and process all requests. Please hold on making any nonrefundable travel plans until you receive an official confirmation that you have secured a seat in the course. HUD cannot be responsible for penalties incurred due to cancelled arrangements.
To accommodate high demand for this training – registrants from grantees that have sent a representative to a Basically CDBG training in the last year will be waitlisted. After each grantee’s first registrant, additional CDBG staff will be waitlisted and will only be permitted to register if the training does not reach capacity. Due to the limited availability of training seats, for-profit corporations, consultants, and consulting firms are not permitted to register for Basically CDBG classes. CDBG grant administrators may be permitted to attend on a case by case basis.
Registration for the Philadelphia, PA training closes on July 13, 2017. HUD will review the registration list within approximately one week and send out confirmations and notifications of waitlist status.

TRUE COLORS FUND TAKING NOMINATIONS FOR THE 40 OF THE 40 LIST
8c143745-a9c3-41fc-8bfe-f199638ae6a7.png
The 40 of the 40 list provides a platform for the 40% of youth experiencing homelessness who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or questioning, age 18-24. Youth are the experts of their own truths, and we aim to honor their voices and their stories. Our goal is to inspire hope and help reduce the stigma often associated with housing instability and homelessness.

The 40 of the 40 list gives young people a unique opportunity to become spokespeople for their communities and apply for the True Fellowship program. We want to offer the same opportunities and more to 2018’s list of honorees – but first we need YOU to nominate them!
