Advanced CDBG with Underwriting Course
Advanced CDBG (2 Days)
The National Community Development Association (NCDA) is pleased to announce the delivery of a three-day course which combines Advanced Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) training and introduces requirements (current and proposed) for underwriting CDBG projects.
It is highly recommended that registrants have at least 3 years of CDBG experience before taking this course. People with less than that should take NCDA's CDBG Basics course first. The first two days focus on Advanced CDBG concepts & management. Senior staff, new managers and experienced managers wishing to stimulate new ideas can benefit from the course. The agenda will include information and discussion on effective program planning, equitable allocation systems, program implementation challenges, leveraging resources and problem solving. The course will be reinforced through in-class exercises. Course participants will receive a training manual, including resource material. If you have specific issues you'd like to discuss, bring them with you.
CDBG/HOME Underwriting/Subsidy Layering (1 Day)
The third day’s session will focus on the new HOME Underwriting/Subsidy Layering requirements and because HUD is going to be requiring CDBG grantees to establish CDBG underwriting policies/guidelines, how the HOME Guidelines may serve as the basis for establishing CDBG underwriting guidelines. The course is based upon the latest guidance from HUD on how to conduct underwriting and subsidy layering for homebuyer and rental development projects.
