Affordable Housing Trust + CPA Conference

Due to COVID-19, we have restructured our March 2020 Affordable Housing Trust + CPA conference into four lunch hour trainings on Zoom. 

Part 1 -- Overview of Affordable Housing Trusts & Working with CPCs

Could you use a refresher on what an affordable housing trust is and how it can support your community's affordable housing goals? Are you wondering how a housing trust and a Community Preservation Committee (CPC) work together? We will cover these questions, along with tips on getting your new trust up and running.

Presented by Shelly Goehring, Senior Program Manager, MHP

Part 2 -- Affordable Housing Nuts & Bolts

How is affordable housing financed? What do lenders require of developers? How does the number of units and number of bedrooms impact how much a developer can borrow? We will take a general look at how we create a development program for a site given the available funding sources and basic lending requirements for housing development.
