Capacity Building & Training

SFCDC provides group trainings, one-on-one technical assistance and other learning experiences for the affordable housing and community development field including capacity building to nonprofits.

Our training and capacity building programming focuses on topics that address affordable housing, community economic development finance, economic development,  community revitalization and nonprofit organizational capacity development. These training opportunities are structured to primarily benefit non-profit organizations, community development professionals and local government but are open to all seeking to expand their knowledge in various aspects of community and economic development. Trainings are offered in group settings and webinars as organized and/or facilitated by SFCDC.

In addition to our traditional training and capacity building programming, SFCDC has expanded its presence and impact in Miami-Dade County by recently co-designing the Community Scholars in Affordable Housing with the University of Miami Office of Civic & Community Engagement, University of Miami School of Education and Human Development and Catalyst Miami. The second cohort of the program got underway January 23, 2015. To learn more about the program click here Community Scholars in Affordable Housing Program.

In 2015, we continued our partnership and are currently co-designing the Miami Thrives Community of Practice with Catalyst Miami, University of Miami Office of Civic & Community Engagement, University of Miami School of Education and Human Development, and Neighborhood Housing Services of South Florida. Cohort #1 consists of several place-based community development coalitions in Miami-Dade County.

The communities of practice are selective leadership programs. We encourage you to apply in the next round.
