HUD Programs

Goldfarb & Lipman’s affordable housing practice often involve working with the programs of the United States Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). We regularly assist our clients in harmonizing HUD program requirements with the requirements of other public and private financing, interpreting policies, and ultimately, successfully closing transactions.  We maintain regular and productive contact with HUD officials and staff, both through project-specific work and on taskforces, in California, Washington, D.C. and elsewhere, and we track evolving policy and program regulatory developments.  A number of our attorneys have worked at HUD, giving us a deeper understanding of and insight into HUD process.

Our work with HUD development and financing programs includes:

  • CDBG Program
  • HOME Investment Partnerships Program
  • Section 108 Loan Guaranty Program
  • Section 202 & 811 Programs
  • Section 8 Certificates and Vouchers
  • Flexible Subsidy Program
  • FHA Insurance Programs
  • Section 8 Loan Management Set Aside
  • McKinney Act Homeless Programs
  • HOPWA Program
  • HOPE VI Program
  • NSP
  • Section 236 and 221(d)(4) Programs
  • Preservation Programs
  • UDAGs and HODAGs when operational

We also provide our clients with research and analysis on issues relevant to their roles in the housing process. Examples include the preparation of memoranda and reports on prevailing wages, the impact of welfare reform on public agencies and housing providers, and relocation law.
