Note: This event is exclusively open to executive directors and senior managers from existing Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs).
HUD’s Office of Affordable Housing Programs (OAHP) is pleased to announce the availability of its web-based Strategic Management for CHDO Executives course. This course is an updated version of the former Certificate in CHDO Management offering which has been updated to reflect the 2013 HOME Final Rule requirements.
With over 15 weeks of online instruction, this course covers a range of management and affordable housing topics, including a review of key CHDO regulatory requirements, focusing on operations management and financial management, and culminating in a strategic business planning module and capstone project. The course occurs entirely in an online environment that requires independent study and significant continuous interaction with other CHDO executives. This course allows flexibility to complete coursework beyond the typical 8-hour workday.
The course begins in late February 2016 with a virtual orientation held the preceding week. All course activities will conclude by June 30, 2016.
Who Should Attend?
The online curriculum is designed for experienced CHDO executive directors and senior managers who want to direct their CHDOs in a more strategic manner. The curriculum will mostly benefit executives that want to:
- Increase their effectiveness by refining their skills and increasing their knowledge of the federal HOME Program regulations
- Enhance the capacity of their organization to operate successfully in an increasingly performance-based funding environment
- Collaborate with an experienced instructor and peers drawn from across the nation all while learning at their convenience
- Receive high-quality training at no cost to their organization
CHDO executives nationwide may apply; however, this course is not for board members. Space is limited and admission is competitive. Register today!
Please note that submitting a registration request does not guarantee a spot in the training. After submitting an initial registration request in the HUD Exchange, you are required to submit a supplemental registration form which provides additional information needed to finalize the class roster. In the supplemental registration, you will be expected to provide details about your organization’s recent history as a CHDO and interest in the course, which will be reviewed and approved prior to confirmation. Participants accepted into the course will receive a final confirmation.
