Using 4% with 9% LIHTCs (“Hybrid”) to Boost Housing Production


In response to the sharp reduction in equity pricing after the election, TCAC developed emergency regulations allowing successful 2nd round 2016 9% projects to reapply using a Hybrid structure which utilizes both 4% and 9% tax credits. This panel includes industry professionals experienced in structuring, financing and developing Hybrid deals.

What Lies Beneath: The Top Ten Lurking Dangers in Standard Construction Contract Provisions


Construction contracts are often treated as mere afterthought. After all, the AIA-standard forms are mostly boiler-plate stuff right? This conventional wisdom is anything but wise as the contract is loaded with provisions that could lead to shocking results. This panel will discuss the 10 most significant provisions that may appear harmless, but, in fact, fundamentally alter the owner’s expectations.


Moderator: Lynn Hutchins, Goldfarb & Lipman LLP

Resyndication: What Could Possibly Go Wrong?


As tax credit projects reach the end of the initial compliance period, many are in need of recapitalization and substantial rehabilitation. In some projects, cash is needed to finance the investor’s exit. Join our group of panelists to learn more about the opportunities as we “re-up” projects with a new layer of tax credit financing.

Late Afternoon Workshops (3:30 – 4:45 PM)


New State Housing Bills and How They Might Help Your Project Get Approved


Based on the Legislature’s concern that local governmental approvals are among the biggest obstacles to approval of housing, numerous bills have been introduced to provide “by right” approvals and narrow the grounds for denying/reducing the density of housing projects. This session will discuss bills signed and what to expect next.
