Written Agreements


Written Agreements are the keystones of your HOME and CDBG programs – it is the document that locks the pieces of your programs together and upon which your programs can succeed or falter.


This two-day in person course will cover the basics of written agreements and teach participants how well-structured written agreements are not just a HUD requirement, but your strongest contract management and monitoring tool. Learn about required provisions and best practices, how to use written agreements as roadmaps with your partners during activity delivery, how to structure agreements to ensure effectiveness in enforcing obligations, and what to do about past agreements that may fall short. For additional information, please refer to the agenda.
