Sponsored by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA), this intensive training series targets IHCDA’s Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs) and nonprofit development partners. IHCDA will review registration lists prior to TDA approving your registration.
Targeted to executive directors and senior managers of CHDOs and nonprofit development organizations and based on courses developed and delivered for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Strategic Management for CHDO and Nonprofit Development Executives consists of two in-person sessions plus a 16-week online college-style course.
The program begins with a two-day in-person session – CHDO Opportunities in HOME – to kick off the series and to provide an overview of the HOME program and the CHDO set-aside – covering the CHDO definition, CHDO project roles, and core HOME requirements related to the development of both homebuyer (for-sale) and rental housing.
From this foundation, participants transition into an online college-style course for 16 weeks. With modules focusing on operations management, financial management, and strategic planning, each week includes several short presentations and reading assignments. Participants will be required to join discussion forums and complete weekly assignments, applying their learning to issues and challenges facing their own organizations. The online course ends with each participant preparing a final “capstone” project – typically the development of a strategic business plan intended to improve an aspect of their organization’s operations.
The course culminates in another two-day in-person Capstone Session where participants present their final projects to each other, the course instructor, and IHCDA representatives.
