Housing & Community Development Leadership Insititue

Here’s how you can get involved!

There are different ways your organization can help develop the housing and community development leaders of tomorrow. We need to offer scholarships to our students to offset the cost of tuition for our course selection. The cost of training ranges from $100 for a webinar course to up to $5,000 for series and certification.
