CARH’s Insights for On-sites Newsletter; 2018 RD Site Managers of the Year Awards


March 12, 2018

1) CARH’s Insights for On-sites Newsletter

The 1st Quarter edition of CARH’s Insights for On-sites has been published and a hard copy was mailed out to all CARH members on March 9th. A PDF version can also be viewed and downloaded by clicking here, or by visiting the Resources/Publications section of CARH’s website,

This issue of the Insights for On-sites provides property managers with information on the 2018 Scholarship Foundation scholarships for their residents and the 2018 RD Site Manager and Maintenance Person of the Year award process. It also includes a detailed article in HUD’s interim rule on streamlining regulations; how to host a Summer Meals Program at your property; security advice; and what to do when disaster strikes.

The Insights for On-sites newsletter is published for onsite property management professionals and maintenance personnel. If CARH has a property address on file, a hard copy was also mailed directly to the property. However, the majority of properties will not receive a hard copy. Therefore, we encourage you to share this newsletter with your properties!
