When rehabilitating existing housing supply, finding capital sources to help enliven properties can be challenging. And, based on looks alone, you may not realize that your project may qualify for Historic Tax Credits (HTCs). Combined, the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program and HTCs can help create equity as well as debt financing. Sign up for this Dec. 15 webinar and learn more about:
- Identifying housing and what qualifies for HTCs
- Building an effective capital stack with HTCs and RAD
- Working with the State Historic Preservation Offices and the National Park Service
- Why this process is a potential solution to revamping existing housing
Three years after its creation, questions remain about the Opportunity Zones (OZs) investment initiative and how low-income communities and other potential stakeholders can benefit. Our new resource “The Guide to Making Opportunity Zones Work," available as a paperback or Kindle edition, seeks to provide a better understanding of the interconnected needs and goals of all players to help optimize outcomes for all.
Highlights for the Affordable Housing community include:
- A chapter dedicated to what real estate project developers need to know about OZs
- A look at the potential for combining OZ with NMTC, LIHTC, and HTC
- Explanations of the terms and tests unique to the OZ ecosystem
