Rural Housing Preservation Academy

Academy Description

Enterprise Community Partners (Enterprise), Motivation, Education, & Training, Inc., The Texas State Affordable Housing Corporation, The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, and the Rural Rental Housing Association of Texas are pleased to present the Rural Housing Preservation Academy. The Academy is a series of no-cost training and peer learning sessions designed to help rural housing providers and nonprofits acquire and/or preserve USDA housing in their respective communities. Over a six-month period beginning in January 2018 training sessions will be held approximately every six weeks. These training sessions will be open to existing owner/operators interested in preserving Rental Assistance (RA) in their properties or parties interested in acquisition for the purpose of preservation of RA and the affordability of the units.  The training sessions will span from basic introduction and overview of the Rural Development programs to exploring financing options and new financing models to property management. Enterprise will bring in experts and practitioners that have proven success in preserving units and are thinking outside the box when it comes to funding to help deliver the training sessions. 

Technical Assistance

In addition to the delivery of the trainings, the Rural Housing Preservation Academy will also be accepting applications from participants to receive no-cost targeted one-on-one technical assistance to support their efforts for preservation. The assistance will be tailored to the needs of the recipient based on what their goals are and the support they identify in being critical to move their project forward. Up to ten organizations will be selected to receive technical assistance as funding allows. Please note that you will be asked if you intend to apply for technical assistance when you register. If you select yes, a technical assistance application will be sent separately.
