Housing Development Certification Program (HDFP)
HD410—Home Ownership Finance
In this course, the first in the HDFP Certification Program, participants learn the skills and techniques that successful housing development finance practitioners use to create affordable, owner-occupied, single family housing. The course takes an in-depth look at the financing of housing and how financing affects affordability—of both the unit’s sales price and the buyer’s monthly mortgage payment.
Course Length: Four days Prerequisite: None
HD420—Rental Housing Development Finance
The second course in the HDFP Certification Program, HD420 takes a detailed look at the analysis, financing and development of affordable rental housing. In this course, participants learn the underwriting criteria used by lenders and the rates of return demanded by private equity investors in order to determine their investment in a rental housing project. HD420 also explores the methods practitioners can utilize to attract the maximum amount of private capital to rental housing projects as well as the techniques to fill financing gaps with public resources.
Course Length: Five days Prerequisite: While not required, NDC recommends that individuals complete the HD410 course before taking HD420.
HD422—Computer Spread Sheet Analysis for Housing
The third course in the HDFP Certification Program, HD422 incorporates the use of computer spread sheets designed to give participants the ability to apply the financial analysis techniques presented in the previous two courses. In this course, participants learn to use spread sheets as a tool to locate and interpret key financial information and to restructure a housing transaction based on revised assumptions. More time is available to consider structuring options for affordable home ownership and rental housing case studies. Note: Participants must bring a laptop computer equipped with Microsoft Excel.
Course Length: Three days Prerequisites: HD410 and HD420
HD430—Housing Development Finance: Problem Solving and Deal Structuring
The fourth and final course in the HDFP Certification Program, HD430 blends the financial analysis techniques learned in the previous courses with the problem solving and negotiating skills that housing development practitioners use to close complex projects. This course challenges participants to analyze and structure financing packages for home ownership and rental housing deals that are complicated by a variety of factors, both financial and non-financial. Participants become skilled at the methods used to structure financing that most effectively leverage public dollars. Note: Participants must bring a laptop computer equipped with Microsoft Excel.
Course Length: Five days Prerequisites: HD410, HD420 and HD422
