The Economic Development Toolkit helps CDBG grantees develop the skills and knowledge necessary for carrying out a variety of CDBG activities that result in economic opportunity for low- and moderate-income persons through the creation of jobs and other sustainable neighborhood benefits.

Participants will learn how to design and administer an effective economic development management team to carry out activities such as:

  • Microenterprise development
  • Assistance to for-profit businesses and community-based development organizations
  • Financing of large-scale commercial, industrial, or other real property projects and improvements
  • Financial underwriting
  • Applying Public Benefit Standards
  • Section 108 Loan Guarantee financing

This 3-day training includes a combination of lecture and hands-on exercises.

The Economic Development Toolkit is for CDBG grantees interested in learning how CDBG can be used to carry out economic development activities. Note: this is not an introductory class; participants should be familiar with the CDBG regulations. Grantees may register for any Economic Development Toolkit training course location nationwide.
