Welcome to our Website

The Virginia Association of Housing and Community Development Officials (VAHCDO) is dedicated to preserving and maintaining Virginia’s existing housing resources; improving the health and living standards of the people of Virginia; and developing new housing opportunities throughout the Commonwealth. VAHCDO represents agencies and localities that use federal, state and local funds for the development, construction and maintenance of housing.

VAHCDO plays an important role in the formulation of housing and redevelopment policy in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Such policy influence results from the strength and support of our member agencies and the effective leadership of Board of Directors. VAHCDO representatives interact regularly with the Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA), Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (VDHCD), Virginia Housing Study Commission, and the Virginia Office of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

BB&T in partnership Virginia Housing Development Authority is bringing the National Development Council (NDC) to Richmond, Virginia to offer their Housing Development Finance Professional (HDFP) Certification Program. The four-course training program explores the development process, financial analysis techniques and structuring and negotiating skills needed to successfully develop and finance affordable home ownership and rental housing development. Skills are taught within the context of case studies based on actual affordable housing development deals that members of NDC’s professional staff have structured and implemented in conjunction with clients in urban and rural communities across the country. In 2015, two courses in the series will be offered: HD 410 – Home Ownership Finance and HD 420 – Rental Housing Development Finance. Participants that complete all four courses will receive the HDFP certification. For registration information, view the training brochure.
