Two-day Training Institute

Grounded Solutions Network’s Training Institute is the go-to place for professional development for anyone starting, administering or stewarding a homeownership program with lasting affordability. Training Institute classes are either full-day or half-day and focus on the knowledge, skills and abilities that practitioners need to be able to do their jobs more efficiently and effectively. Facilitated by expert trainers, these classes also include ample time for peer exchanges-- recognizing that sometimes what is most helpful is talking through a challenge with someone else who has been there before.
NEW to the Training Institute this year:
  • Sessions for more experienced practitioners focusing on risk analysis, data collection and reporting and lending relationships
  • Topics for municipal program practitioners focusing on monitoring, compliance and enforcement
  • Sessions for residents and board members on storytelling and advocacy
