12:30 p.m. Preservation of Affordable Housing

Where can owners find the money that is needed to make improvements to aging housing stock that will extend its life for future generations to come? The lack of money from state and federal sources and the difficulty of taking a loan on a property with limited revenue eliminate these options. Tax credits and tax-exempt bonds are currently the only two options for many properties in need of recapitalization. Two experts will explain why other resources are not available and how tax credits can help to preserve affordable housing units.

2:10 p.m. Maximizing Underutilized Assets for Affordable Housing

Many churches and other nonprofit organizations have facilities and land that are not being used to their optimal potential. Besides selling to a private developer, there are other options that can advance the mission of affordable housing. This session is for property owners with idle assets who are looking to do something that will create a legacy of good.
