NSPIRE Workshops

The NSPIRE workshop series provides a means for HUD to engage with NSPIRE stakeholders about NSPIRE. For each workshop, HUD enlists stakeholders with expertise to review specific elements of NSPIRE. Participants are asked to answer thought-provoking questions about inspection standards and other program areas. HUD will then analyze the feedback to help refine standards and other aspects of NSPIRE.

While recordings of the workshops are not available, please feel free to download workshop content below.
