HUD LEAN: Changes and Updates

Recorded Thursday, July 19, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. (Eastern)

HUD has become a very attractive financing alternative, with its comparatively low rates and long amortization, if your project qualifies...and if you plan for what may be (or may not be) a long wait for approval of your application. HUD instituted a "Lean" process a couple of years ago in order to streamline the application process. Our panel of experts, which includes bankers who have worked extensively with HUD financing for their clients, will tell you how HUD Lean is working out and how you can improve your likelihood of success.

This educational offering has been approved for 1.50 clock hours by the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB).
