For this webinar, Scott Rounds walked through the Financial Feasibility (Income and Expense) and the Project Cost and Uses sections of the application, the SDHDA pro forma, and explained how these numbers correlate. Discussion was focused on the types of expenses you will likely incur, how to ensure you have sufficient financing or income to cover these expenses, and what alternatives may exist if your proposed budget doesn’t work.
