On April 29 from 2-3 p.m. ET, a roundtable of Affordable Housing leaders will talk about the impact of COVID-19 on the community development industry. What help is available through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and other mechanisms that have already been enacted, as well as those currently being discussed? What fixes have been left out so far, and what still needs to be done? Three CohnReznick leaders – Beth Mullen, Bob Moss, and Tax Credit Investment Services Leader Cindy Fang – will be joined by:
1. Andrea Ponsor, President and CEO, Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future (SAHF)
2. Julie Hertzog, Executive Director, Affordable Housing Investors Council (AHIC)
3. Merrill Hoopengardner, President, National Trust Community Investment Corporation (NTCIC)
4. Ray Pearl, Executive Director, California Housing Consortium (CHC), and President, Council of Independent State Housing Associations (CISHA)
While there is tremendous impact worldwide due to COVID-19, the most relevant for the Affordable Housing industry is on business continuity and financial stability. CohnReznick has resources available for both issues, such as articles on the Small Business Administration (SBA) disaster relief loan program and, for not-for-profits, an April 14 webinar. Find them all here:

Our theme will be vulnerability, an even more acute risk as low-income communities are impacted by COVID-19. We will dig into a wide variety of critical issues with an exhibit hall, main session ballroom, and chat rooms with you at the controls. We will even have a virtual happy hour networking event!
