WEBINAR- SHIP Incentive Strategies and the AHAC
March 5, 2019 - 10:00 am - 11:30 am
The Governor’s recent budget recommendations and other vocal legislative support related to affordable housing are encouraging. We hope the SHIP program is fully funded in the upcoming legislative session. Consider if your community’s SHIP allocation might surpass $350,000 this year. If it does, you must complete an AHAC report before receiving funds.
An AHAC report is required triennially from each SHIP local government that receives more than the minimum allocation of $350,000. Please register for the March 5 AHAC webinar for guidance, unless you have already submitted the AHAC report for 2019 or are in the process of completing it. SHIP staff who have not submitted an AHAC report in 2017, 2018 or 2019 due to receiving the minimum or less allocation in recent years should attend this webinar to help them consider if a report should be prepared. Completing an AHAC report can take time, so address this now.
This webinar provides an introduction to housing incentives based on regulatory reform. It is designed to specifically assist staff who must immediately begin AHAC work. Participants will learn about the statutory requirements and deadlines entailed in assembling a committee and helping them write a report to be presented to City or County Commissioners. The presenters will provide guidance on specific incentive strategies that must be considered and will offer other best practices to encourage policy discussions.
