On April 12, INARF staff participated in a webinar offered by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, and the Money Follows the Person Program to gain valuable housing resources for Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) offered in rural areas. The webinar included information about the US Department of Agriculture's Rural Housing Services programs, including multi-family and single family housing, and community facilities funding. INARF members may find these resources helpful as you work to provide housing options to individuals you serve.
Specifically, the webinar included information about the following housing resources:
-USDA Multi-Family Housing Preservation and Revitalization Demonstration Loans and Grants Program
-USDA Guaranteed Rural Rental Housing Program
-USDA Rental Assistance Program
-USDA Rural Development Single Family Guaranteed Loan Program
-USDA Rural Development Single Family Direct Loan Program
-USDA Rural Development Home Repair Loan and Grant Program
-USDA Rural Development Community Facility Funding
