Capitol Connection: Housing and legislative updates 

Listen in as Bob Moss and David Gasson, principals with MG Housing Strategies, join Beth Mullen, CohnReznick’s Affordable Housing practice leader, to discuss critical legislative updates for the LIHTC industry. This month’s conversation explores federal budget prospects and possible alternatives to a government shutdown, preliminary feedback on the new CRA regulations, and more. 

Coming next week! 2023 CohnReznick Affordable Housing Credit Study

The 2023 CohnReznick Affordable Housing Credit Study is slated for release next week on Nov. 14. The report – a milestone 10th edition – will unveil an analysis of more than 2,000 funds and over 30,000 properties through 2022. The report will also assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the national LIHTC portfolio, as well as include fresh updates on income and operating expenses.

Also, be sure to register for our post-release webinar on Dec. 5, where leaders will provide an overview of how to use the study to benchmark portfolios, develop best practices, and gain valuable insights into the industry.

Diverse Developers Conference: Insights and strategies for success

The CohnReznick team attended the Diverse Developers Conference last month in Chicago, which brought together policy and educational professionals from diverse and underrepresented populations in real estate. The event served as a platform for attendees to dig into the challenges and needs of emerging developers.

Check out a highlight of key themes and takeaways in Jonathan Kearney’s recent LinkedIn article.
