We present to you our Training Workshops:

Gilson Housing Partners’ NSPIRE Training Workshops provide you with up-to-date information on the National Standards for the Physical Inspection of Real Estate (NSPIRE) inspection model and how it functions within the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) and Public Housing (PH) programs.
