Do you have a budget gap? Is your project in need of some tax credit equity? If the answers to these questions are “yes,” then you want to be sure to pay attention to your State’s Qualified Action Plan (QAP). Please join HAND for an engaging and informative session on how to put forth a competitive QAP application on February 23, 2017 from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM at the DC Housing Finance Agency (DCHFA), 815 Florida Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20001. As part of this two-panel session, you will hear from senior officials from each jurisdiction’s (DC, MD, VA) allocating agency on recent policy changes and housing priorities in the QAPs. You will also hear from an experienced group of consultants and syndicators whose projects have scored successfully on the QAP. From common pitfalls to avoid, to positioning your project to be competitive, you will walk away with insider tips and tricks to help you in your effort. The panel discussions will also discuss changing needs and policy priorities of state and local jurisdictions, as well as how market conditions, cost constraints, and political considerations play out in the QAP process.
