This webinar—originally scheduled for Thursday, January 31, 2013—has been rescheduled to Tuesday, February 5, 2013 at 2 pm EST. The participation instructions have changed; the updated instructions are below.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will be featuring a webinar for NSP grantees, to answer questions and solve NSP problems through discussion with the Department of Housing and Urban Development Headquarters staff and peers. This webinar is one in a series of webinars and open forum question and answer sessions that will give NSP grantees and all NSP affiliates the opportunity to ask the questions they have about NSP rules, regulations, or any other current issues of interest. Though this webinar will focus on the upcoming NSP deadlines, any NSP related questions will be answered.
This webinar is intended for all NSP1, NSP2, and NSP3 grantees, staff and partners.
Please join us Tuesday, February 5, at 2 pm EST.
Webinar materials will be posted to the NSP Learning Center
as they become available. Please visit the NSP Learning Center

Asking a Question within the Conference Call/Live Meeting
Throughout the presentation, you will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
During the call, the operator will control the line of questions. In order to join the queue to ask a question press *1 on your touch-tone phone; the operator will mute your phone until it is your turn to ask a question. If your question is answered before you get the opportunity to ask it, you can remove yourself from the queue by pressing *2.
You may also submit your question via Live Meeting rather than asking it verbally. Change your status to "Purple: Question" then type in your question via the Q&A box on the Live Meeting toolbar. Once your question has been answered, be sure to change your status back to "Green: Proceed."
