Model ACOP and Guide

NMA's Model Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy (ACOP) provides you with expert guidance in a time-saving, user-friendly format, doing the heavy lifting of policy-making for you and potentially saving your agency hundreds of hours of work.

For each policy, the accompanying instruction guide offers important points to consider and customizable policy choices so that you can choose the best policy to suit your agency’s needs. Also, the model ACOP cites and describes HUD regulations and other requirements in detail, which presents your agency with a solid foundation in policy-making.
