The Rehab Train Institute is a training program open to non-profit housing providers and community housing development organizations interested in learning more about the rehabilitation of older homes within urban core neighborhoods.
The program is set up as a classroom training environment with a demonstration model component that will provide site visit and contractor interactions, as well as work-in-progress learning opportunities. The classroom portion will be based on a presentation and instruction model, including case studies for participants to review and discuss in small and large group discussions. The demonstration model will be available at all three sessions for participants to tour and learn from as the project proceeds in development.
The 3 sessions include a rules and regulations component, lead assessment component, project development, project budgeting, financing options, proposal development, marketing and buyer preparation components in partnership with Louisville-area experts and HUD approved trainers. All classes are facilitated by the Center For Neighborhoods staff.
