"This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it." -

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Considering the current time a good one given the numerous challenges we face in the affordable housing industry is difficult. While the need for decent, safe, and sanitary affordable housing has never been greater, the resources to meet that need are ever shrinking. Organizations, companies, families and individuals must stretch every dollar, spend funds wisely and get the best value for their investments. This has forced all of us to look at our spending to ensure we are efficient in our operations.

To help stakeholders, NTHDC will be offering a series of free classes throughout the upcoming year. Our goal is to ensure all of our industry partners can attend our training sessions with minimal project expense. Sessions will be held at affordable housing properties, provided by NTHDC staff and will be free of charge and open to all.

We will also be hosting the first NTHDC Florida Conference in Tampa this September for our Owners and Management Agents. Final details of this conference will be forthcoming, but we plan on making this an annual event.

Another of NTHDC’s initiatives is updating our website. The improved website will be available later this spring and will provide more ways to help our industry partners stay current with HUD policy changes and initiatives. New to the site will be a forum section where ideas can be exchanged with other property staff or questions can be submitted to NTHDC. We will also post conference resentation materials for review, so those unable to attend a particular conference will have access to those resources.

We hope these efforts will assist you in operating your property. We encourage you to send as many staff members as you can to the upcoming sessions. We appreciate the hard work that you do at your sites every day and we want to be a resource to help you.
