The Tax Credit Housing Finance Conference gives attendees the opportunity to share their ideas while diving into the the types of innovative financing that will lead to the development of more affordable housing.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 12, 2012
On November 29-30, affordable housing leaders from across the country will gather at the Four Seasons Las Vegas to examine innovative and vital solutions that lead to successful projects, as well as how the low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) is a crucial part of the equation. Developers, lenders, investors, accountants, attorneys, agency officials and other members of the affordable housing industry come together each year for Novogradac & Company LLP’s Tax Credit Housing Finance Conference, where they discuss industry and market changes, strategies, public policy and the very latest in LIHTC development financing.
“Everyone in the affordable housing industry knows how important it is to collectively reflect on our industry practices so that we can continue to identify ways to deal with new challenges and grow our level of knowledge and expertise, especially related to financial matters,” says Mike Morrison, conference chair and partner in the San Francisco office of Novogradac & Company LLP. “As affordable housing practitioners face greater challenges, and as transactions become more sophisticated, engineering a project that pencils out has become an increasingly complex undertaking. The Tax Credit Housing Finance Conference gives attendees the opportunity to share their ideas while diving into the the types of innovative financing that will lead to the development of more affordable housing.”
The information presented at the conference, both practical and theoretical, is designed to benefit those of all levels of knowledge and experience. Expert panelists—industry veterans hand-picked for their expertise—will focus on newly passed and upcoming legislation, the current debt and equity markets and other hot topics, including limited partner issues in Year 15, twinning LIHTCs and renewable energy tax credits and blending HUD subsidies into a project’s financing.
The event will also feature three pre-conference workshops on Wednesday, Nov. 28: LIHTC 101: The Basics, LIHTC 301: Advanced LIHTC Financing and HUD 101: Understanding Multifamily Programs. Separate registration is required and additional fees apply.
An LIHTC Property Compliance Workshop will be held in conjunction with the conference. The two-day workshop on Nov. 29 and 30 is designed to educate and provide a refresher to property managers who seek a deeper understanding of LIHTC compliance issues.
