Services for Real Estate Pros with PEMCO Ltd.

Bringing in M&M III for 2011, HUD has implemented new policies, new incentives, and new management structure. With all that change in any business capacity comes confusion. PEMCO is determined to ease agents' bewilderment and with their newest PEMCO event, "Fresh Look on HUD", this can be done in a fun and dynamic way. Not only will they dispel common myths and misconceptions, but agents will be given detailed information on marketing HUD Properties from a selling agent's perspective. In addition, this very low cost event includes games, giveaways, food, and prizes! It's not your typical HUD training, nor is it your typical event. It's an interactive way to truly grasp what it is to sell HUD! Special guest Ralph Jackson, HUD Director of REO, will also be in attendance. This is an event you won't want to miss and early bird prices and hotel discounts are available through July 1st, so don't waste time! Visit www.pemcoevents.com for more information and to register.

What else has HUD been up to in North Carolina? 

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has been working hard in North Carolina to clean up the housing crisis! Over the last couple months alone, they have been able to get the ball rolling on some interesting neighborhood revitalization projects. 

- Just short of $200,000 in grants were awarded in order to provide job training and education to individuals participating in HUD's Housing Choice Voucher Program. Participants are given training on marketable skills through programs created by public housing agencies working with welfare agencies, schools, and other local partners in order to increase their employment opportunities and ultimately help these individuals lay the ground work for self-sufficiency. During the family's program term, the head of household signs a contract that ties them to an agreement that the head of household will obtain a job and part of that income is deposited into an interest bearing escrow account. After the 5 year program term, the participant is no longer able to receive welfare assistance and will also receive that escrow money for any purpose.

- $800,000 were awarded to Elizabeth City State University for neighborhood revitalization, housing, and economic development; part of an over $2 million project aimed at historically black colleges and universities. In this program, HUD designated colleges are given money to go towards the stabilization of the community and aid for low to moderate income families purchasing a home through down payment and closing cost assistance.

- Asheville, NC was awarded a "Doorknocker Award" for their participation in HUD's HOME Investment Partnership Program with their Pathways to Permanent Housing with their tenant-based rental assistance program. This prestigious award was awarded to state agencies and local communities for their outstanding work in providing affordable housing.

- Close to $6 million was given to 25 North Carolina homeless programs in order to provide housing as well as support services to homeless individuals and families. This is part of their larger project, HUD's Continuum of Care, which assists homeless individuals with transitional and permanent housing, as well as supportive services.
