Emerging Developers Program

Richmond Neighborhood Housing Services is delighted to announce our 2nd cohort for our Emerging Developers Program (EDP) launching in June 2022, with Prerequisites courses taking place in early May 2022. This program will be delivered in a virtual format, using the Zoom platform. EDP is a 3-month long educational program designed to provide industry professionals with the knowledge and technical skills to develop infill units, and single-family homes. RNHS will coordinate and align resources between community-based technical assistance providers, and lenders to maximize the resources targeted directly at Black-led development and real estate-related firms.

We accept applications during our open enrollment period, which takes place from March 28, 2022 – May 20, 2022. Spots are limited.
