About This Course:
This CLE webinar will discuss how to utilize Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTCs) and tax-exempt bonds in multi–family construction financing. The program will discuss the mechanisms of each form of financing, how each impacts the other, and current market trends and developments impacting these financing vehicles.

The availability of government incentives for multi-family affordable housing projects creates an opportunity for investors, developers and governmental entities.

Tax-exempt bonds and the syndication of LIHTCs are primary tools for developing new affordable housing or rehabilitating existing affordable housing. To qualify for and maintain these incentives, investors and developers must comply with strict requirements.

Counsel structuring multi-family affordable housing transactions must understand the complex rules for qualifying for the LIHTC and how to best leverage tax-exempt bond financing.

Listen as our authoritative panel of real estate practitioners walks you through the process of qualifying for and structuring transactions that utilize the LIHTC to finance multi-family housing projects. The panel will also address structuring tax-exempt bonds that can be paired with the LIHTC, and the potential effect of proposed corporate tax cuts on the LIHTC market.
