Collection: Hearing Officer Specialist

Purpose

This two-day training is essential for hearing officers, members of hearing panels, managers who represent the PHA in hearings, and policy analysts. Hearing Officer Specialist is packed with information, covering all aspects of public housing and housing choice voucher hearings. After getting grounded in the regulations, participants examine PHA policies and grievance procedures that determine how regulations are implemented. The seminar will walk participants through coordinating and conducting orderly and fact-based hearings. Commonly heard issues, working with advocacy groups, the 504 coordinator, and reasonable accommodation issues will be addressed. This workshop also includes extensive hands-on practice. In small groups and individually, participants will read cases and make decisions, citing appropriate regulations and PHA policies.
