Course Description 

The Fund Accounting training is a key building block in establishing an effective financial management system. The training will improve your understanding of fund accounting and how to use it to manage homeless programs. The trainers will address the following topics: 

  • Understandingcommon misconceptions about fund accounting
  • Differentiatingbetween allowable and unallowable costs
  • Chargingcosts to the appropriate grant
  • Budgetingfor SNAPS projects
  • Keepingaccurate time and activity reports
  • Identifyingand documenting match
  • Preparingaccurate grant reports

Participants will receive a reference manual and several handouts, including examples of budgets and time and activity reports that comply with fund accounting principles.

Fund Accounting is the first training in a series of financial management trainings for SNAPS grantees and project sponsors. Completion of the Fund Accounting Clinic is a prerequisite to attend the second training, Cost Accounting, scheduled for next year. The Fund Accounting Clinics taking place in San Francisco, Oakland, and Fresno in August 2009 are the last trainings that will take place before the next Cost Accounting Clinics.

Who Should Attend

Fund Accounting is for Executive Directors, as well as financial and program managers or staff. This course is designed to focus on the interrelationship of program and financial management. We recommend each agency send one program and one financial manager / staff person. This training focuses primarily on the Supportive Housing Program (SHP). However, HUD urges all SNAPS grantees and sponsors to attend this important financial management training, which is a prerequisite for future financial management trainings.


The training and manual is provided free of charge by HUD. Registration is required to attend.


Participants will be responsible for their own meal arrangements and if necessary, lodging arrangements.

The facilities are accessible to persons with physical disabilities. Participants who require auxiliary aids or have other special needs should contact Vicky Liu, at or (415) 677-7173, at least two weeks prior to the training so appropriate accommodations can be made.

Upcoming Trainings

Next year, HUD will offer Cost Accounting, the subsequent training in the financial management series. Cost Accounting focuses on accurately budgeting and tracking costs, allocating costs appropriately, and ensuring that all activity costs are eligible. This course differs from Fund Accounting in that Fund Accounting focuses on the costs associated with a funding source, while Cost Accounting focuses on all of the costs associated with implementing an activity.
