Aren’t all HUD Programs PRAC-tically the Same?

The answer to that question is No.  This special class is focused on PRAC Contracts and what makes them unique.  We will highlight was makes PRAC project eligibility different from other HUD Multifamily programs and discuss how these properties are funded and financed in a unique way.  In addition to these nuances, we will also cover the common recertifications scenarios encountered by PRAC managers like fixed income verification options, asset verifications, and unique termination requirements.  Don’t miss this opportunity to get on “TRACK with your PRAC.”

The Texas Governor’s office has issued the following statement, “In light of recent heavy rainfall across the state, we are on high-alert as any additional rain could quickly create dangerous flash flooding conditions. I urge all Texans to take precautions and review their emergency plans now to prepare for any potential impact to their community.”

We recommend that properties on/near the Texas Gulf Coast closely monitor this disturbance throughout the week via news outlets or the National Hurricane Center ( We also encourage all properties to review the disaster preparedness tips found in the full ListServ #186:
