In order to assess the training needs for the members of our association we will need input from you, your staff and Board as well as tribal leadership. With the award of $300,000 of training funds, UNAHA has the opportunity to more comprehensively address training and technical assistance needs of our members. The following topics were identified by UNAHA officers and staff for focus this year. In the past we covered a majority of Indian housing operations. Most of them were related to efficient administration of NAHASDA.  You will see that we now hope to help you with more complex and timely training and TA that address expanding Indian housing topics. The list is not in any way intended to be the only topics that can be addressed.  Please feel free to add any topic(s) that are not listed.
