HOTMA: Policy Impact and Analysis Workshop


The Housing Opportunity through Modernization Act (HOTMA) has made a myriad of changes to the Housing Choice Voucher Program and Public Housing. This course focuses on the policy changes and impacts that HOTMA will have on the agency administrative plan/ACOP. We will be covering only the program changes and how they impact your program and policy. We will discuss the pro’s and cons and provide a participant guide so that participants have useful tools to customize the policies and incorporate into your agency documents.


After completing this training, participants will be able to:

  • Effectively understand the components and requirements of HOTMA.  
  • Understand where your agency will need to create, change, amend or update policies.  
  • Ensure compliance with the HOTMA.  
  • Understanding and discussion of mandatory changes and where agency choice is a factor.
