The NDC 2017 Academy will be held in Washington, DC on October 23-25. The program includes:
Building Affordable Housing
The Affordable Housing track will explore several emerging topics in the field, including:
- The Challenges of making a LIHTC Deal work in Changing Times – As the likelihood of tax reform waxes and wanes, and multiple programs supporting affordable housing are proposed for reduction or outright elimination, the LIHTC market remains in flux. Hear from market experts including developers, investors and syndicators about where the market is and where it is likely heading. This session is structured with first half as an interactive pricing game, with second half being a discussion of things that are impacting the market.
- Non-Profit and For-Profit development partnerships – Many for-profit developers have partnered with non-profit organizations to develop affordable housing targeted at the population these organizations serve. Hear from several organizations on both sides of this equations as they talk through real life case studies followed by a discussion of what it takes to make these partnerships work.
- Special Needs Housing – Housing policy is being leveraged to address many more societal issues than just affordable housing. From Permanent Supportive Housing for the chronically homeless to Affordable Assisted Living and addressing the needs of our Veterans, Special Need Affordable Housing needs consider much more than bricks and mortar. Planning for services and management of these facilities, as well as designing them to meet the unique needs of their residents takes a coordinated effort. Hear from experienced practitioners and their real life experience of success
- Stories from the Frontline of Asset Management – The challenges facing affordable housing projects today often require the collaboration of all parties involved – sponsor/General Partner, investor/Limited Partner, lenders, property manager and third parties – to find and implement strategies and solutions that will ensure projects may continue to operate effectively through the end of the regulatory period and beyond. This session will feature projects that have benefitted from the involvement and cooperation of the partners and the employment of problem solving and negotiation skills
