Since the DC Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) transitioned to Housing Counseling Services, Inc. (HCS) handling income certifications for inclusionary zoning (IZ) units and affordable dwelling units (ADUs), the NCHM training course has been adjusted to remove the income certification training and exam. This updated, shortened course is required for property managers and sales agents handling IZ/ADU properties.
If you previously took the full session and are trying to renew your certification, you most likely only need the updated, shortened course.
If you’re interested in the income certification training previously offered, please contact DHCD at (202) 442-7221 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are considering taking this class to satisfy the requirements of the Housing Preservation Fund, please call 202-442-7275 or email email@example.com.
