A Second Chance to Take 2 Fantastic Webinars

  • Understanding Year One of the Credit Period is a client favorite, and we are offering it again on Thursday, November 17th.  You cannot be successful developing and operating LIHTC developments if you do not understand the critical rules that govern how and when you initiate each building’s credit stream during year one.

You can read more information below about both of these webinars.  Let us know if you have any questions about what you can expect to experience if you take either of these courses.

What We Understand About Using the Housing Trust Fund in LIHTC Projects

Date:  Tuesday, December 6, 2016; 1 PM to 4 PM Eastern Time

$229 per person; $200 per person when you register at least 2 people at the same time

Brand New Training!

We have a brand new funding source in the affordable housing industry.  HERA 2008 established a federal Housing Trust Fund (HTF).  Through the HTF, HUD allocates block grants to the states to support the creation and preservation of housing affordable to extremely low and very low income households.  2016 is the first year that funding is available, and the states are busy holding public meetings seeking comments from the industry on their proposed use of this resource.  Whether you are a developer or a property manager, while your state establishes their program priorities, you can learn how the HTF can be used to finance affordable housing and the program’s compliance requirements during this WEBINAR.  And since most affordable housing is financed with using low income housing tax credits (LIHTC), it is important to understand how we can blend the HTF with LIHTC to fund a project, and how to manage a site to comply with both programs.

You can read the full agenda and register for this webinar at Housing Trust Fund.

Understanding Year One of the Credit Period

This is one of our most popular courses, and for good reason.  Most of the credits that are wasted are lost due to what an owner does, or fails to do during year one of the credit period.  It is important that everyone actively using the  LIHTC program, both developers and property managers, understand the impact of the actions they take during year one.

You have probably heard the expression, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” You would not say that about what happens in year one of the credit period at a low income housing tax credit (LIHTC) project.  What an owner and manager do during year one, and when they do it, establishes the value of the credits produced during year one, and the potential value of the credits for the entire credit period.  Whether you are a developer, property manager, or perhaps an asset manager for an LIHTC investor, you need to understand how LIHTC are produced and calculated during year one.  Register for this 3-hour WEBINAR, including a 15 minute break, to learn how you can be more effective in getting your LIHTC project off to a strong start.

Private Training Sessions

Do you have a group of people who need training on a specific topic?  Perhaps you have a number of employees from one company or practitioners all belonging to the same association.  We can design Private Training Sessions for you on any of the topics we teach through our Public Training Sessions. We have time available during 2016 and have already begun scheduling sessions for 2017.   Email Daisy Snow to discuss how we can help you obtain the training you need.
