The two-and-a-half day Strength Matters Boot Camp on Financial Reporting for Rental Housing Nonprofit Enterprises is designed specifically for:

  • *NEW* CFOs for rental housing organizations

The Strength Matters Boot Camp is designed to provide an overview of the accounting and financial reporting issues faced by a nonprofit housing enterprise throughout the lifecycle of an affordable housing deal. The course offers Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit for CPAs.

Course content will provide a broad understanding of a tax credit affordable housing deal, its parties and motivations and on the complexities of accounting and financial reporting requirements of their organizations. As well as its relevance to investors and other capital providers.

This Strength Matters Boot Camp will be held June 15-17, 2020 at Way Finders Housing Center, 1780 Main Street, Springfield, MA. The course will run full days (8AM-4PM) Monday (6/15) and Tuesday (6/16) with a half-day (8AM-Noon) on Wednesday (6/17). 

Participants are responsible for their own accommodations. The brand new facility is conveniently located downtown Springfield next to the train station and other public transportation. There are several hotel options nearby.

After completing this course, participants will be able to identify financial reporting issues as they arise and research best practices for the recording and financial reporting of transactions frequently encountered by affordable housing enterprises. The goal is to enable each participant to produce accurate financial reports that are consistent with generally accepted accounting principles applied within this industry.
