AH118 Using the National Housing Trust Fund
This two-day course will walk participants through the requirements for how to use the Housing Trust Fund (HTF) in structuring financing for housing developments. While many housing developments will be multifamily rental, especially special needs housing, homeownership will also be considered.
The course will cover the policy context for the Housing Trust Fund and HTF regulations. These regulations are based on HOME but have numerous differences. Also discussed, will be how HTF can be used with HOME, the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC), Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD), Public Housing (Choice Neighborhoods) and other programs.
Participants will just need a basic understanding of housing development or underwriting; participants will not need to have taken the basic HOME course for this workshop. Both nonprofit developers and their lenders (state housing finance agencies and their local partners) can benefit from this course.
This course is taught by a HOME and housing development expert.
Course Length: 2 Days
