Course Overview

Advanced CDBG
The National Community Development Association (NCDA) is pleased to announce the delivery of a threeday 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 (Please reference note below - as this is a two-day event)
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.

A course agenda is attached. The Early Course fee is $475 for members and $575 for non-members. Early Registration is available through February 23, 2024. In order to ensure a spot in the class, please register online at  If your community is sending more than one person to this training, please register each person on the same registration screen. If your organization registers four or more participants on the same screen, a 15% discount will be automatically applied. Please contact NCDA Staff with any questions.

*Note: This course is normally taught over a period of three days. To accommodate the host community’s schedule, a condensed version is being offered that will incorporate many (but not all) of the elements of the full three day course.

Certification Maintenance (CM) provider. This session is qualified as a CM event. This is qualified as a
CM I 13 (13 hours of credit). To receive CM credit, you must sign in to the class and remain for the
