WEBINAR- Affordable Housing Funding Sources- Part 1
June 2, 2020 - 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
This training is designed for SHIP administrators, other local government housing staff, and nonprofit developers. It provides an overview of major funding sources to subsidize the development of affordable housing, beginning with SHIP, SAIL, CDBG, HOME, and LIHTC. Presenters will also provide an overview of Opportunity Zones, a new program created under the Tax Cut and Jobs Act passed by Congress in December 2017 that is expected to spur private investment in low-income census tracts designated as Opportunity Zones. Key topics will provide an overview of where these sources come from, how they are allocated, the allowable uses, the process to apply for them, and how to advocate for each program.
