Webinar Wednesday- FH and Welcoming Families with Children
Welcoming families with children presented by John Zimmerman
Have you ever heard the phrase: “two heartbeats per bedroom?” We have too but have learned that saying promotes a business myth. Why? It is not really true. In 1998 HUD released the Keating Memorandum that instructs housing providers they must begin conducting individualized assessments of applicants, especially families with children. HUD wants housing providers to use common sense and to use HUD’s scenarios as guides to the practice of controlling occupancy. Here is one of many hypotheticals this course will examine from this guidance: “It may be an acceptable standard to allow two adult parents to rent a one-bedroom apartment with their infant child, but not if the child is a teenager.” Obviously, more than 2 heartbeats in the bedroom of two adults and an infant. Log onto this webinar to learn more about the hypotheticals that should guide all occupancy restrictions and guidelines.
