Local Housing Authority Mandatory Board Member Training

The Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) established and implemented a comprehensive training program for board members of state-aided LHAs.

Program Information

Included in the Chapter 235 legislation is that the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) establish and implement a comprehensive training program for board members of state-aided LHAs.

DHCD partnered with the University of Massachusetts’s Donahue Institute to develop an online training. Board members can take this training anywhere there is an internet connection. Current Board members may go through the five modules and one mini-module at their own pace as long as they complete all modules by the deadline of 11:59pm on Monday, June 19, 2017.

After board members have completed their training, they need only retake the training upon reelection, reappointment, or every two years. Newly elected or appointed board members must complete their training within 90 days of their election or appointment; executive directors must submit newly elected or appointed board members’ unique e-mail addresses to DHCD as soon as possible via the online LHA Board Attendance Application.
