Capitol Connection: Housing and legislative updates

With significant action taking place in Congress these past few days, catch up with our latest Capitol Connection. Items discussed include the American Jobs Plan and what it contains, including “targeted tax credits,” the Neighborhood Homes Investment Act, and other components. Listen in as two pre-eminent leaders from affordable housing’s efforts on the Hill, Bob Moss and David Gasson, both principals with MG Housing Strategies, join Beth Mullen, CohnReznick’s Affordable Housing practice leader, to cover these updates and their impacts on the low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) industry.

Our industry-leading LIHTC study is underway for 2021

The industry’s leading analysis of its kind on the LIHTC industry is, once again, underway. CohnReznick’s Tax Credit Investment Services group is already collecting data to have the latest performance, operational, and other data available in November of this year. New aspects will be included in this year’s report to reflect the effects of COVID-19, including related portfolio impacts and Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan impacts on deal-level operations and more. Additionally, all data will be brought current through year-end 2020. Be sure to register below for the Portfolio Performance Indicator if you have not already done so. We will announce more study details throughout the year through Affordable Housing News & Views.

Creating value by building trust: Rethinking the real estate industry’s future amid and after COVID-19

  • Healthy building strategy
  • Finance and capital strategy
  • Risk management and continuity
  • Plus, video insights from our team and from leaders across the real estate industry

Reminder: New lease accounting standard in effect for public NFPs

The new lease accounting standard (Topic 842, “Leases”) is effective for fiscal years beginning after Dec. 15, 2019 (calendar year 2020), for Public Not-for-Profits that elected the optional one-year deferral thereof. Such entities should now be implementing Topic 842, and also taking into account any added complications related to COVID-19.
