This training is a unique opportunity to participate in a full day training, offered by Cloudburst Consulting Group, HUD’s leading training contractor for IDIS and the eCon Planning Suite. MCDA is pleased to offer this training in conjunction with Cloudburst to members at a substantial discount.

This full-day training course will provide a thorough introduction (or review for more experienced users) of how to operate within IDIS and comply with CDBG requirements such as grants-based accounting.  The course is tailored for CDBG staff and managers who want to understand how the various IDIS components link together, including how to make sure IDIS projects and activities align with the eCon Planning Suite to ensure that grantees are ready to efficiently produce their CAPER.

The training will demonstrate a full range of IDIS functions within the context of CDBG requirements, including:

  • Aligning IDIS activities and projects with Action Plan Goals and Priority Needs in the eCon Planning Suite Overview and Projects

  • Ensuring IDIS data is ready for your CAPER

  • Setting up CDBG activities and reporting accomplishments

  • Activity Funding and drawdowns

  • Grants and Grant Based Accounting

  • CDBG Program Income and Other Receipts

  • MicroStrategy Reports

  • Financial Reporting and CDBG Cleanup

 To keep costs down for this training there will be lunch hour scheduled but lunch and breakfast are on your own. The Holiday Inn has an onsite restaurant and downtown Muskegon offers many affordable lunch spots walking distance from the hotel. to view the schedule, and learn more view the draft agenda

You are welcome to bring your laptop to follow along but this training is not designed to guide you through the IDIS program for your community, therefore instructors will be presenting and fielding questions pertinent to the entire group. There will not be individual technical support. Wifi is available at no cost in the conference rooms.

Thank you to the Cloudburst Group for sponsoring this training. Because of their support we are able to offer this training for a reduced fee.
