Strategic Management for CHDO and Nonprofit Development Executives

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 an online orientation, webinar training, a 16-week online collage-style course, and a capstone project.

The program begins with a webinar delivery of TDA’s CHDO Opportunities in HOME course, delivered in four 2-hour sessions. This kicks off the series and provides 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 consisting of three modules delivered over 18 weeks, with two weeks off (one week between each module). With modules focusing on operations management, financial management, and strategic planning, each week includes several short presentations and reading assignments. Participants are required to join discussion forums and complete weekly assignments, applying their learning to issues and challenges facing their own organizations. While most of the course will be delivered asynchronously, each of the three modules include one live session, allowing participants to interact with each other and the instructor.

The program concludes 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. Capstone projects will be presented to the other participants, the program instructor, and IHCDA representatives. Depending on public health conditions, the capstone projects may be presented in-person in Indianapolis or online.
