WORKSHOP- Affordable Housing Funding Sources
December 11, 2018 - 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
This workshop is an introduction to federal and state affordable housing funding sources, including the State Housing Initiative Housing Partnership (SHIP), State Apartment Incentive Loan (SAIL), Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME), Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), HUD Continuum of Care (CoC), and Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC). Presenters will provide an overview of the source of the federal and state funds, how the funds are awarded, allocated and distributed, and their allowable uses. Participants will discuss methods to increase funding for affordable housing on the local level and strategies to encourage the development of affordable housing. Participants will build on that knowledge and discuss how these funds could be leveraged in different scenarios. The training is designed for new housing program administrators and nonprofit developers as well as experienced housing administrators that would like to refresh their knowledge of the programs and learn about recent program updates.
