Senior Programs Specialist, Kalamazoo, MI - November 9, 2015
Multi-tasking is my middle name with the City. Stress level can be high at times. Overseeing the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs such as HOME, CDBG and ESG. Putting together all the activities that will take place with these three programs and making sure that HUD releases the funds. Accepting proposals from organizations that are interested in the HUD funds to start or complete their projects. I also oversee the environmental reviews procedures and make sure all projects that require the reviews are cleared before releasing the funds. Because affordability periods are attached to rental and homebuyer programs (depending on the amount of money) I monitor the organizations for period of years to make sure they are being compliant with the federal and state regulations. These are just the few things that I do on a daily basis.
