Anyone in the field of affordable housing knows how important it is to reflect on our industry practices as a group so that we can continue to identify ways to deal with new challenges, build on our existing knowledge and skills, and develop new expertise
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 11, 2011
Affordable housing leaders will gather at the Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas, December 1 and 2 to examine the critical and creative financial solutions that lead to successful projects and learn how the low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) is a crucial part of the equation. Developers, lenders, sponsors, accountants, attorneys, agency officials and other interested parties are drawn annually to Novogradac & Company LLP’s Tax Credit Housing Finance Conference where housing professionals discuss industry and market changes, strategies, public policy and the very latest in LIHTC development financing.
“Anyone in the field of affordable housing knows how important it is to reflect on our industry practices as a group so that we can continue to identify ways to deal with new challenges, build on our existing knowledge and skills, and develop new expertise, especially as it relates to financial matters,” says Mike Morrison, conference chair and partner in the San Francisco office of Novogradac & Company LLP. “Each year affordable housing practitioners face greater challenges, and as transactions become more sophisticated, engineering a project that pencils out is increasingly complex. This event enables practitioners to share their ideas while exploring the types of innovative financing that will lead to the development of more affordable housing.”
The information presented at the conference, from the practical to the theoretical, is applicable to beginners and experts alike. Panelists, industry veterans chosen for the expertise, will focus on passed and pending legislation, underwriting standards in today's debt and equity markets and other hot topics such as acquisition/rehab, limited partner issues in Year 15, and blending HUD subsidies into a project’s financing.
The conference will also feature a pair of concurrent pre-conference workshops, LIHTC 101: The Basics and LIHTC 301: A Course for the Experienced Professional, on Wednesday, November 30, 2011. 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 December 1 and 2 will inform and refresh those property managers who want to learn and understand low-income housing tax credit compliance issues and concerns.
The Tax Credit Housing Finance Conference is co-hosted SNR Denton. Sponsors include Boston Financial Investment Management, Enterprise, Hunt Capital Partners LLC, IFG Capital Tax Credit Solutions, Polsinelli Shughart PC, Prudential Mortgage Capital Company, RBC Capital Markets, Red Stone Equity Partners LLC, Stratford Capital Group, and The Richman Group Inc.
