The Training You’ve Been Waiting For!

CDBG Boot Camp is a four-day training program for state CDBG agency staff. The program provides the information you need about state CDBG requirements, federal laws and regulations that shape how the program is administered every day.

The Boot Camp format features presentations and related class exercises. The training guidebook is an excellent resource with statutory provisions, HUD regulations, notices, a glossary and case examples. The Boot Camp program is taught by a team of highly experienced state CDBG managers. Boot Camp will be a prerequisite for the CDBG Advanced Training offered through the COSCDA Academy.
