Sneak Preview of a CohnReznick Report: LIHTC Property Operating Expense Analysis

Property Tax The data show that property tax expenses are significantly impacted by a state’s stance on including the value of housing credits in a property’s valuation and the availability of property tax abatements or exemptions. For instance, Idaho is the only state where there is agreement that the credits should be considered in property valuations: not surprisingly, the Idaho housing credit portfolio ranks among the highest property burden as a percentage of overall gross expenses (15%+). At the other end of the property tax spectrum, California and Washington allow for wide-ranging statutory property tax abatements, and the data show that these states experience the least property tax burden (less than 4%) as a percentage of total gross expenses. The large concentration of California properties in the overall portfolio (11%), and the fact that a significant portion of these properties have some form of property tax abatement (58%), has a significant impact on the overall national median per unit property tax expense. Texas, however, is one of the many states where there is no current guidance from either the legislature or court precedent regarding the inclusion of credit value in property valuations; as such, property valuation can differ from municipality to municipality.

Housing Stimulus: FHA Lowers Rates for Affordable and Energy Efficient Properties

By Orin Parvin and Henry Tracy

Banking on a brighter future. At BBVA Compass we aren't just in the business of banking, we're in the business of working toward a brighter future for all. In order to keep that promise, we are proud to sponsor the 2016 Texas Housing Conference. We look forward to brightening the lives of those in the communities we serve. #livebright

1-800-COMPASS • bbvacompass.com

Reduce rates, spur activity. That seems to be the thinking in Washington these days regarding the development of affordable and energy efficient multifamily housing. And to those in the housing industry, that thinking is definitely welcomed. In this article, we provide detail on the requirements for obtaining reduced Mortgage Insureance Premium (MIP) rates for both affordable and energy efficient housing. In January of this year, HUD announced new initiatives to further promote the financing of affordable housing and energy efficient housing. Through the reduction of MIP rates for properties in these two categories, HUD is firmly standing behind its mandate to provide affordable, quality housing to renters nationwide. HUD estimates that the rate reductions will equate to the rehabilitation of 12,000 affordable units each year. The new MIP rates went into effect on April 1, 2016, and housing developers are already starting to enjoy the benefits.

Energy Efficient Housing In addition to promoting affordable housing, FHA is motivated to encourage energy efficient housing. Its new green and energy efficient initiative can be a great option for the new construction or substantial rehabilitation of marketrate projects. With appropriate initial planning, the expectation is that new construction projects can qualify rather easily. For substantial rehabilitation projects, borrowers should research the feasibility of implementing efficiency changes to meet the energy compliance benchmarks. The new MIP rates for all programs under the green and energy efficient designation will be 25 basis points, down from as high as 100 previously (Figure 1).

qualify for the reduced MIP. Substantial rehabilitation projects that wish to qualify for the program will likely need to include significant renovations such as heating and cooling systems, energy efficient windows, modern insulation and appliances. If an energy audit finds the proposed rehabilitation to meet the efficiency requirements, 75% of the projected savings may be recognized by FHA. The savings are eligible in the underwriting process before any changes to the physical plan have occurred, which makes the energy-focused rehabilitation even more attractive. It should be noted, however, that simple kitchen and bathroom renovations are unlikely to meet the required standards and will not

Mortgage Insurance Premiums (MIP) Changes for Green/Energy Efficient Properties Reduced Rates for Affordable Projects In a clear effort to be as inclusive as possible, FHA has reduced mortgage insurance premiums for a broad category of affordable projects. Most projects demonstrating at least a 10% level of affordability will qualify for reduced rates. The lowest MIP rates will be available for the projects that have the highest level of affordability and provide the most affordable housing units. The following criteria outlines FHA’s guidelines for this reduction, which is broken out between two distinct categories. The first, “broadly affordable,” will garner the lowest rates with MIPs of 25 basis points. An “affordable” designation will carry a slightly higher MIP rate of 35 basis points.

Broadly Affordable Designation For these projects, FHA has lowered annual rates to 25 basis points, which is a reduction of 20 or 25 basis points from previous rates. Broadly affordable is defined as housing with: • At least 90% of units covered by a Section (Sec.) 8 project-based rental assistance (PBRA) contract or other federal rental assistance program contract serving very low income residents, with a remaining term of at least 15 years; or • At least 90% of its units covered by an affordability use restriction under the low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) program or similar state or locally sponsored program. A recorded regulatory agreement must also be in effect for at least 15 years after final endorsement.

Affordable Designation For affordable mixed-income properties that implement partial LIHTC, partial Sec. 8, inclusionary zoning, or other local affordability requirements, FHA has lowered annual rates to 35 basis points. The effective reduction is a 10 to 35 basis point decrease from previous rates. The qualifications for the affordable mixed-income use properties are further detailed as follows:

Texas Affordable Housi ng M agazi ne

• Evidence of a deed covenant or housing ordinance on “inclusionary zoning” at the subject property to evidence the affordable unit set-asides. A minimum of 10% of the units must be affordable to a family at 80% area median income (AMI), with rents no more than 30% of the income at that level. The affordability set-aside must be in effect for at least 30 years after final endorsement of the FHAinsured mortgage and be recorded in a regulatory agreement; or • Demonstrate that the project has between 10% and 90% of units covered by a Sec. 8 PBRA contract or other state or federal rental assistance program contract serving very low-income residents, with a remaining term of at least 15 years; or • Demonstrate that the project has between 10% and 90% of its units covered by an affordability use restriction under the LIHTC program or similar state or locally sponsored program, with rents sized at no greater than 30% of the income eligible for occupancy under the LIHTC program, with a recorded regulatory agreement in effect for at least 15 years after final endorsement. • Additionally, the project must also agree to accept voucher holders under Sec. 8 or other federal program voucher holders as residents for vacancies in units not covered by project-based Sec. 8.

Not only has FHA implemented the reduction of the annual MIP rates, but the agency has also lowered the upfront rates from a previous high of 100 basis points to as low as 25 basis points. As affordable units are leaving the system, more than 300,000 per year due to aging stock, FHA is diligently looking to reverse this trend. Furthermore, FHA has demonstrated its concern by implementing several programs in recent years, including the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program and the LIHTC Pilot Program. We should expect FHA to continue to confront this issue with innovative programs and policies such as the MIP rate reduction.

(Figure 1) FHA is setting participants up for success by including a broad category of energy efficient programs. The inclusivity of this initiative will allow many projects to meet the requirements. Acceptable qualifications for the reduction include six distinct industry recognized standards and leaves the door open for the approval of additional programs as well. The following are programs that will qualify under the initiative: • U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) for Homes, LEED for Homes Midrise and LEED for New Construction • ENERGY STAR • EarthCraft’s House and Multifamily • Earth Advantage New Homes • Greenpoint’s Rated New Home and Rated Existing Home (whole home or whole building label) • National Green Building Standard (NGBS) •Others approved at FHA’s sole discretion

This could make the allure of energy efficient building appealing to affordable properties as well. FHA is clearly motivated to make strides in both providing more affordable housing as well as partnering on projects that are highly energy efficient. Expect transactions with these attributes to be very well received. For more information contact Lisa Vecchietti at lvecchietti@lancasterpollard.com or (512) 327-7400.

Energy Efficient Housing In addition to promoting affordable housing, FHA is motivated to encourage energy efficient housing. Its new green and energy efficient initiative can be a great option for the new construction or substantial rehabilitation of marketrate projects. With appropriate initial planning, the expectation is that new construction projects can qualify rather easily. For substantial rehabilitation projects, borrowers should research the feasibility of implementing efficiency changes to meet the energy compliance benchmarks. The new MIP rates for all programs under the green and energy efficient designation will be 25 basis points, down from as high as 100 previously (Figure 1).

qualify for the reduced MIP. Substantial rehabilitation projects that wish to qualify for the program will likely need to include significant renovations such as heating and cooling systems, energy efficient windows, modern insulation and appliances. If an energy audit finds the proposed rehabilitation to meet the efficiency requirements, 75% of the projected savings may be recognized by FHA. The savings are eligible in the underwriting process before any changes to the physical plan have occurred, which makes the energy-focused rehabilitation even more attractive. It should be noted, however, that simple kitchen and bathroom renovations are unlikely to meet the required standards and will not

Mortgage Insurance Premiums (MIP) Changes for Green/Energy Efficient Properties Reduced Rates for Affordable Projects In a clear effort to be as inclusive as possible, FHA has reduced mortgage insurance premiums for a broad category of affordable projects. Most projects demonstrating at least a 10% level of affordability will qualify for reduced rates. The lowest MIP rates will be available for the projects that have the highest level of affordability and provide the most affordable housing units. The following criteria outlines FHA’s guidelines for this reduction, which is broken out between two distinct categories. The first, “broadly affordable,” will garner the lowest rates with MIPs of 25 basis points. An “affordable” designation will carry a slightly higher MIP rate of 35 basis points.

Broadly Affordable Designation For these projects, FHA has lowered annual rates to 25 basis points, which is a reduction of 20 or 25 basis points from previous rates. Broadly affordable is defined as housing with: • At least 90% of units covered by a Section (Sec.) 8 project-based rental assistance (PBRA) contract or other federal rental assistance program contract serving very low income residents, with a remaining term of at least 15 years; or • At least 90% of its units covered by an affordability use restriction under the low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) program or similar state or locally sponsored program. A recorded regulatory agreement must also be in effect for at least 15 years after final endorsement.

Affordable Designation For affordable mixed-income properties that implement partial LIHTC, partial Sec. 8, inclusionary zoning, or other local affordability requirements, FHA has lowered annual rates to 35 basis points. The effective reduction is a 10 to 35 basis point decrease from previous rates. The qualifications for the affordable mixed-income use properties are further detailed as follows:

Housing Spotlight stories TEXAS AFFORDABLE HOUSING MAGAZINE

The Texas Affiliation of Affordable Housing Providers (TAAHP) is the leading nonprofit association of affordable housing development professionals representing the affordable housing industry in Texas. We want to share a few of the exceptional communities that have been built by TAAHP members. For over 19 years, TAAHP has represented hundreds of local and national housing professionals dedicated to providing high-quality affordable housing for Texans of all income levels. Our members are passionate about what they do and we hope you will enjoy reading each of the Spotlight Stories in this edition of the Texas Affordable Housing Magazine. One of the top goals of the TAAHP leadership team in publishing the magazine is to educate the public and our elected officials about how critical safe and decent housing is to working families, seniors and people with special needs.

spring trace 24505 Aldine Westfield Rd. Spring, Texas 77373 Seniors just outside Houston quickly filled the 180 units of high-quality affordable housing at Spring Trace shortly after it opened in 2014. Located 25 miles north of downtown in North Harris County, Mark-Dana Corporation developed Spring Trace for seniors aged 55-plus. “I fell in love with the property and my apartment with all its beautiful features,” said resident Dee Brown. “The management staff truly cares about the residents and is always helpful when there is an issue. I especially love the fact that if management is not already planning something fun and social for us, they allow us to plan our own potluck lunches and fun activities. Spring Trace is truly a great place to live!” Community amenities include a resort-style pool, fitness center, business center with fax, computers and printers, full community kitchen/ clubhouse with free Wi-Fi, community laundry room, hair salon, craft room, and a conference room with a library area. The property has fullperimeter fencing with controlled access gates. Unit amenities are composed of faux-wood flooring, granite countertops in the kitchen and bathroom, black appliances, built-in desk with shelves, 9-foot ceilings, laundry connections, and, in select units, attached garages. Residents have a host of support services that they can access such as quarterly health and nutrition classes, English as a second language classes, an annual health fair, quarterly financial planning courses, food pantry,

informational sessions on Internet dangers, teambuilding, drug abuse prevention and more. Mark-Dana Corporation also paid attention to environmental sustainability by equipping each unit with Energy Star appliances, ceiling fans, efficient lighting, low-flow plumbing, low-E windows and energy-efficient doors. Mucasey & Associates Architects designed Spring Trace to blend into the neighborhood. The complex is composed of four single-story cottages with one and two-bedrooms along the boulevard entrance centering on a central three-story 156-unit building with elevator service. It is very sought after and fully occupied with a waiting list. Since Spring Trace was built, it has sparked additional development. Walmart built a neighborhood market within walking distance of the complex and a single-family home development to the south has expanded onto 10 additional acres adjoining Spring Trace. “We have been developing housing using the Housing Tax Credit program since its inception and enjoy doing so because it helps hard working people afford a high quality place to live and it helps stimulate the local economy,” Mark-Dana President David Koogler said. Mark-Dana used 9 percent low-income housing tax credits, $15.4 million in equity from U.S. Bancorp Community Development Corporation, $15.3 million in construction and permanent loans from Amegy Bank and a $360,000 bridge construction loan from Harris County Housing Finance Corporation. “Spring Trace is a wonderful community that provides much-needed quality housing, services Texas affo rd abl e Housing Magazine

Summit Parque Green Initiative: Creating an energy-efficient community was an important goal for the development of Summit Parque. The community has several arrays of solar panels mounted on the roof of the building. The clean renewable energy produced will help to offset the amount of energy used by the common areas. This property achieved an NGBS Silver Level Certification. Resident Services Offered: Community and resident enrichment activities are offered which will allow the residents to enhance their abilities while contributing to the community. Summit Parque is committed to improving the fabric of the community through providing opportunities to improve the residents’ lifestyle. Some of the activities planned for Summit Parque are social activities, health and nutrition education, character building and fitness programs. Art in Public Places: Saigebrook Development is a strong believer in public artwork as an integral part of communities. In each one of the communities, Saigebrook commissions a local artist to create an original sculpture, mosaic, mural or other form of art work. The Summit Parque community was designed to create an atmosphere that welcomes residents home by creating a sense of pride and community, encouraging a more caring attitude towards the residence they call home. Summit Parque commissioned the work of Abilene based sculptor Nic Noblique for the public artwork at this community. Titled “Above & Beyond,” the 10 foot tall sculpture is a powder coated recycled steel structure that represents the artist’s tribute to the developer who, in Noblique’s opinion, continuously evolves in determination from one development to the next, producing above and beyond communities with each new venture. Additionally, Saigebrook Development commissioned a special piece for the youth residents at Summit Parque, a play hive structure located on the rooftop terrace. This interactive artwork was created by Austin design studio Thought Barn, and is intended to be an intimate space for sharing secrets on the inside and a climbing frame for testing agility on the outside.

Consisting of 92 mixed-income units, there are ten residential buildings and one clubhouse with amenity and leasing office space and a separate fitness building.

This community is the second of its kind in Tyler by this development team.

Number of units and composition: 22 – One bedroom/one bath apartment homes at 709-760 sq. ft. 44 – Two bedroom/two bath apartment homes at 926 sq. ft. 4 – Three bedroom/two bath apartment homes at 1,118 sq. ft. 6 – Two bedroom/two and a half bath townhomes at 1,156 sq. ft. 16 – Three bedroom/two and a half bathroom townhomes at 1,445-1449 sq. ft.

As a result they invited Anthem Builders to explore a second development opportunity in Tyler; to provide quality, affordably priced, luxury style apartment homes to working families operating on a budget in the north part of town. Saige Meadows is part of the North End Revitalization plan, which came out of the city’s first comprehensive planning process.

el paso rAD 13 Properties located in El Paso, TX The Housing Authority of the City of El Paso (HACEP) was the first Public Housing Authority (PHA) to have its entire portfolio (6,100 units) approved for rehabilitation under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program. El Paso RAD I, the first phase of HACEP’s portfolio renovation plan, is, to date, the largest RAD transaction to close in the country. When completed, RAD I will provide 1,590 newly renovated multifamily and single family units to low-income families throughout 13 different properties across the City of El Paso. These properties will offer one, two, three, four, five and six bedroom plans to residents who make at or below 60% of the area median income (AMI). All existing tenants, including those whose income exceeds 60% AMI, will have the opportunity to return to their communities. Residents will live in quality, sustainable housing with EnergyStar appliances, energy efficient systems and xeriscape yards. Families will enjoy new basketball courts, playgrounds and gymnasiums. Construction for the project began in April 2015 and is scheduled for completion by Spring 2017. Orchestrating the rehabilitation of 1,590 units over a two-year period was a massive undertaking.

priority to keep residents informed, having children stay in existing schools, minimizing transportation disruption, and keeping resident relationships intact during the rehabilitation period. Development and Financing To launch RAD I, HACEP partnered with Hunt Companies, Inc. to co-develop the property. The total development cost of RAD I was $241 million, partially financed by over $80 million in 4% lowincome housing tax credits (LITHTC), which were syndicated by Alden Capital Partners. Alden Capital Partners’ structuring of this deal was critical in maximizing the benefits of the LIHTCs and minimizing the risk to investors. One of the main structural aspects of the transaction was bundling the properties into a single partnership to control transaction costs. Bundling of the properties allowed for a single permanent loan secured by all 13 properties. This effectively allowed certain properties’ NOI to subsidize other properties that might not be able to service their pro rata allocation of the permanent loan. Additionally, by structuring the rehabilitation as a tenant-in-place “rolling” rehab, a substantial amount of tax credits could be available for investors immediately, thus improving LIHTC pricing and increasing equity available for rehabilitation of the properties. These strategies played an instrumental role in driving investor interest and securing funding for the deal.

Welcome to the 2016 Texas Housing Conference! It Was A Very Good Year Mahesh and the Board of Directors have been busy since last year’s Texas Housing Conference. We have continued to tighten the operation of the organization as you can see by the proposed by-laws amendments. We have money in the bank. We have active volunteers. We have a common goal: quality, affordable housing. We have ideas to improve the development process. We have momentum and we have the tools to take advantage of this momentum. There are a number of opportunities at this conference for you to share your ideas and increase that momentum. Please enjoy. Working With TDHCA We continue to enjoy our relationship with TDHCA through Tim and his hard-working staff. We have been active in commenting on several of the rules proposed by TDHCA and we are anticipating more proposals on compliance, utilities and fair housing. In that regard, TAAHP hired its first Policy Director, Tanya Lavelle, to increase our responsiveness to TDHCA proposals. We engaged in a series of roundtable meetings of affordable housing stakeholders organized by TDHCA to suggest improvements to the draft 2017 QAP while it was still a draft. It is possible that the 2017 QAP could be used with very little change in 2018, providing a measure of stability to the planning process. Once again, TAAHP volunteers were prolific contributors in this process. Legislative Preparations Continue The Texas Legislature will not be back in regular session until January of 2017. Since the 2015 legislative session, we have been working with members of the House Urban Affairs Committee to draw attention to the NIMBY attitude toward affordable housing in a number of locations. The committee’s hearing in June went extremely well with seven TAAHP members testifying for TAAHP, other organizations or themselves. Much of the testimony targeted the practice of legislators writing support or opposition letters for planned developments and the increase in NIMBY-ism that led to the creation of the letters in the first place. We look forward to presenting the case for doing away with the legislative letters when the legislature returns. Making It All Possible It was another good year for the organization and, as is the case with most respected trade associations, our achievements were the result of the strong volunteer participation, including our board of directors, committee members, and all who attended and participated in the organization’s functions. Please support our sponsors who make possible the many activities we benefit from. From where I sit, I can see only opportunity.

on behalf of the Texas affiliation of affordable Housing Providers, i would like to welcome you to the 2016 Texas Housing Conference. once again, the Conference is enjoying record attendance. it is quite remarkable how membership and attendance has grown over the past eight years since the great recession. it’s a testament to everyone’s efforts to make Texas among the premier markets in the country to develop affordable housing. TaaHP has made great strides in these past eight years. The organization has a broad membership with people from all aspects of the affordable housing industry. This richness of participation has allowed TaaHP to continue to be at the forefront of key housing issues. as the nature of affordable housing development continues to evolve, so has the diversity of our membership. in the past year, TaaHP has focused on cementing the success of our 2015 legislative accomplishments. We continue to engage our membership on important industry issues. additionally, our renewed focus has been to strengthen our relationships with governmental agencies, particularly the Texas department of Housing & Community affairs. our improved dialogue over the past several years has served everyone very well and allowed TaaHP to effectively support our mission of affordable housing. affordable housing issues have evolved on every level: local, state and national. addressing these challenging issues requires ever-increasing resources to thoughtfully consider proposed policy changes, study the effects of prior changes and ensure that we are prepared to advocate effectively. To that end, we are pleased that Tanya lavelle has joined TaaHP as Policy director. Her addition will provide us significant support to engage with our external stakeholders over the coming years. additionally, as our membership grows, TaaHP’s engagement with membership is also growing. We have added considerable communications support for the organization to provide greater responsiveness and capability to keep our members well informed and to encourage engagement.

as i look toward handing over the reins to my longtime board colleague and friend, bobby bowling iV, i want to convey our sincerest appreciation to our membership, board, and stakeholders for TaaHP’s success and strength. our ability to advocate for affordable housing is greater today than ever before. i especially want to thank our past Presidents for all they have done for the organization and Texans. in the early days, TaaHP started out as a small group of deeply caring and committed individuals who wanted to make sure that Texas had access to greatly needed affordable housing. Their effort to build TaaHP into a strong advocacy group is a pillar of our success today. These many years later, the same principles apply and TaaHP is well prepared to meet the challenges ahead.

on behalf of the Texas affiliation of affordable Housing Providers, i would like to welcome you to the 2016 Texas Housing Conference. once again, the Conference is enjoying record attendance. it is quite remarkable how membership and attendance has grown over the past eight years since the great recession. it’s a testament to everyone’s efforts to make Texas among the premier markets in the country to develop affordable housing. TaaHP has made great strides in these past eight years. The organization has a broad membership with people from all aspects of the affordable housing industry. This richness of participation has allowed TaaHP to continue to be at the forefront of key housing issues. as the nature of affordable housing development continues to evolve, so has the diversity of our membership. in the past year, TaaHP has focused on cementing the success of our 2015 legislative accomplishments. We continue to engage our membership on important industry issues. additionally, our renewed focus has been to strengthen our relationships with governmental agencies, particularly the Texas department of Housing & Community affairs. our improved dialogue over the past several years has served everyone very well and allowed TaaHP to effectively support our mission of affordable housing. affordable housing issues have evolved on every level: local, state and national. addressing these challenging issues requires ever-increasing resources to thoughtfully consider proposed policy changes, study the effects of prior changes and ensure that we are prepared to advocate effectively. To that end, we are pleased that Tanya lavelle has joined TaaHP as Policy director. Her addition will provide us significant support to engage with our external stakeholders over the coming years. additionally, as our membership grows, TaaHP’s engagement with membership is also growing. We have added considerable communications support for the organization to provide greater responsiveness and capability to keep our members well informed and to encourage engagement.

It’s that time of year again – when the temperatures are hot, the humidity is up and yet, everyone’s coming down to Austin. In fact, once again we have attendees representing 32 states and all disciplines of the affordable housing industry. It’s going to be another great networking and learning event enhanced by our fabulous new venue here at the beautiful JW Marriott Hotel. We look forward to hosting you this week for the 19th annual Texas Housing Conference sponsored by the Texas Affiliation of Affordable Housing Providers (TAAHP). Like many parts of the great state of Texas and cities across the country, the downtown Austin skyline seems to be exploding with lots of terrific venues within walking distance or a quick pedicab ride away. Be sure to participate in the TAAHP membership meeting and stay after and hear Michael Ray Newman, CEO of Ziglar International, our Opening Keynote Speaker on Monday afternoon. You will not want to miss our Tuesday Breakfast Keynote Speaker Dr. Robert Dietz, Chief Economist for the National Association of Home Builders. Curt Steinhorst (back by popular demand) with the Center for Generational Kinetics is our Keynote Luncheon Speaker on Tuesday. Join us for various sessions across multiple study tracts to ensure you hear the latest market and policy updates along with a host of issues critical to our industry at this time. Stay for Wednesday’s Policy Brunch and hear from TDHCA’s top executives. But when the sessions are over, please enjoy the best Austin has to offer including our famous live music scene and one of the most innovative food scenes in the country. Network. Have fun. Be safe. And go get some deals done!

An Introduction to Housing Tax Credits There is no better place to learn the basics of the Housing Tax Credit Program than with the experienced moderators and panel members at the Texas Housing Conference. Start with the history of the program and the requirements for 9% and 4% developments, then explore the Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP) that governs the awarding of tax credits. Discuss the many requirements that control what type of site will be best from a real estate and a point-scoring perspective. Hear about other considerations when siting a development, especially the importance of finding a community or neighborhood group that supports the development, and obtaining government recommendations. The panel will discuss what investors look for in LIHTC properties and will demonstrate an actual pitch by a developer to an investor. Structuring and pricing LIHTC deals requires a variety of professionals; learn who they are and what they can do for you. You will have a solid foundation on which to build your career in LIHTCs if you start right here.

Market Rate MF Housing Should I Get Involved?

Debt – Eight Years Post Downturn

Getting the Most Out of Your Equity Relationships

Multifamily Bond Financing – “Back in Vogue”

Critical to the overall health of any community is an economically diverse residential housing base. New housing units are needed as population growth and demographic shifts occur. It only stands to reason that we need our housing stock to evolve as well. Many housing developers are seeing significant benefit to having diversity within their real estate portfolio. Should you be exploring options such as completely re-developing an existing product that is transitioning out of the tax credit program? Or, should you consider building a new market rate housing development? What are the considerations and challenges for you if you are looking to diversify? Key elements in this session will include debt financing, equity sources, and developing market or sub-market intelligence so that you can better evaluate opportunities. Presentations will include case studies of newly constructed market rate developments.

This discussion will feature several affordable housing lending experts located throughout the state of Texas providing insight on credit terms and market conditions. Panelists will discuss the latest trends and financing options within the affordable housing industry. There will be a wide array of current discussion topics including exit year debt options, underwriting mixed income rate and workforce developments and underwriting smaller communities. Panelists will review solutions to current financing obstacles including interest rate risk and the financial impact of rising construction costs.

A current and frank discussion about recent changes in the syndication and investor marketplace including a brief overview of market pricing and terms. The panelists will further explore nuances of the existing climate for equity marked by historic high pricing and some initial erosion of core business terms amidst Y15 fears while asking the important question, “does it matter who my equity partner is going forward?

After years of limited use, tax-exempt bond financing is being used more regularly to finance affordable rental housing. In this session you will learn how tax-exempt financing is being used and who is using it. Our experts will discuss the types and locations of properties being financed with taxexempt bonds and the active lenders participating. The LIHTC environment and its effect on 4% bonds will also be discussed along with public/private partnerships and incentives. Participants will walk away with a good overview of how this important resource is being used and of the most common and efficient financing structures.

Legislative Changes to the QAP

Legislative Letters and nIMbY

fair Housing Choices

Keeping PACe in Texas

every year, TdHCa promulgates a new QaP rule to determine which development applications will be funded. every other year, members of the affordable housing fraternity trek to the Capitol as surely as bats come out from under the Congress avenue bridge to ask legislators to change the carefully crafted QaP. Why is this trip necessary? Texas has the most legislatively directed QaP process in the country. everyone with a development in mind has an idea for improving the QaP. is this a best practice? Hear what unravels when you pull a string on the QaP.

in Texas, we are generally happy to do things the Texas way. in fact, Texas legislators have a privilege most of their colleagues in other states do not: they are able to make or break applications for liHTC developments. The Texas QaP is required to award or take away scoring points based on the opinion of a legislator as expressed in a letter to the TdHCa board. This privilege is reserved for members of the Texas House of representatives, as senators voluntarily gave up the privilege in 2013. How do legislators form their opinions of proposed liHTC developments? are their decisions based on the proposal in question or on a general feeling about affordable housing? affirmatively furthering fair Housing requirements will make future decisions more complex. City’s responses to liHTC applications range from enthusiastic to unwelcoming. Their official comments can make or break an application for an liHTC development, also. learn how to cut to the chase when seeking city support for your development.

fair Housing is even more of a “hot button” issue because of last year’s sCoTus decision regarding disparate impact and Hud’s affirmatively furthering fair Housing rule. experts will share the impact of these recent considerations on the policies that govern the production and choices of affordable housing for Texas families.

Would you like to boost your roi by investing in energy and water conservation initiatives? Would you like to pay for that investment from the conservation savings and not from a cash outlay or loan? find out how to save utility costs for your development and for your residents. This panel is composed of industry innovators sharing environmental green and an economic green. Participants will learn how the PaCe program has been established and fine-tuned in Texas and how affordable housing developments can benefit from it.

Legislative Changes to the QAP

Legislative Letters and nIMbY

fair Housing Choices

Keeping PACe in Texas

every year, TdHCa promulgates a new QaP rule to determine which development applications will be funded. every other year, members of the affordable housing fraternity trek to the Capitol as surely as bats come out from under the Congress avenue bridge to ask legislators to change the carefully crafted QaP. Why is this trip necessary? Texas has the most legislatively directed QaP process in the country. everyone with a development in mind has an idea for improving the QaP. is this a best practice? Hear what unravels when you pull a string on the QaP.

in Texas, we are generally happy to do things the Texas way. in fact, Texas legislators have a privilege most of their colleagues in other states do not: they are able to make or break applications for liHTC developments. The Texas QaP is required to award or take away scoring points based on the opinion of a legislator as expressed in a letter to the TdHCa board. This privilege is reserved for members of the Texas House of representatives, as senators voluntarily gave up the privilege in 2013. How do legislators form their opinions of proposed liHTC developments? are their decisions based on the proposal in question or on a general feeling about affordable housing? affirmatively furthering fair Housing requirements will make future decisions more complex. City’s responses to liHTC applications range from enthusiastic to unwelcoming. Their official comments can make or break an application for an liHTC development, also. learn how to cut to the chase when seeking city support for your development.

fair Housing is even more of a “hot button” issue because of last year’s sCoTus decision regarding disparate impact and Hud’s affirmatively furthering fair Housing rule. experts will share the impact of these recent considerations on the policies that govern the production and choices of affordable housing for Texas families.

Would you like to boost your roi by investing in energy and water conservation initiatives? Would you like to pay for that investment from the conservation savings and not from a cash outlay or loan? find out how to save utility costs for your development and for your residents. This panel is composed of industry innovators sharing environmental green and an economic green. Participants will learn how the PaCe program has been established and fine-tuned in Texas and how affordable housing developments can benefit from it. Hear where and how deals have been put together in Texas. discuss the roadblocks that have been dealt with and those that remain.

a brief update on TaaHP’s government affairs initiatives Producing

AWARD-WINNING AFFORDABLE HOUSING COMMUNITIES i n Texa s s in ce 1997

by: bobby bowling Chairman, government affairs Committee

it is a pleasure to have served as your government affairs director this past year—a role aptly placed on the incoming President of TaaHP in our by-laws to help prepare for that final step up the ladder as President. during my time in this role, we have been preparing for the next legislative session, monitoring national issues, gathering input and preparing comments for the QaP as we do every year. i want to extend a special “thank you” to Janine sisak for taking on the arduous task of Chairing our QaP Committee. Thank you Janine, and thanks for agreeing to Chair the Committee again for 2017. on the legislative/court front, we are all aware of the recent supreme Court ruling on the iCP—TdHCa lawsuit. While we all may have opinions as to the public policy shift that gives so much weight to “High opportunity areas”, or “Hoas”, that TdHCa created a few years back, this policy is currently in place as part of the remedial plan submitted to the court, and something we all have to live with for now and the immediate future. as with most laws/court rulings there are often unintended consequences. one of the most glaring unintended consequences of the establishment of Hoas, coupled with the “Political support” point items in the Texas QaP, is the obnoxious and probably illegal power NIMBY (“Not In My Back Yard”) forces have been granted in the tax credit development evaluation process. fortunately, there is hope. The Texas House urban affairs Committee held their first interim Hearing on this issue in Houston in May, and will be holding more hearings to gather input on this issue. i had the opportunity to speak for TaaHP at that hearing and i can tell you it was one of the most positive interim Hearings i have had the pleasure of attending. The individual state legislators on the Committee were extremely well-informed on this issue, and the invited testimony, (which included non-profits, private developers, industry trade groups, consumer advocate groups and even local governments and housing authorities) was 100% united on combatting “NIMBY-ism”. One House Member even queried as to why our developments are held up to often times a series of public hearings at the local level, when regular apartment complexes (who serve mostly the same population we do in tax credit housing) are not. Well, we agree with you representative and we hope to eliminate that point item in the next session with your help! also on the legislative radar screen is our attempt as an industry to introduce fairness and uniformity on the tax appraisal front. How often has it happened that in the same appraisal district we are told that the “income method” will be used on our most profitable deals, but on our less profitable deals, we are told that some “hybrid method” or some “minimum” (that seems to be pulled out of the sky) will be applied? There is a case in where employees of the appraisal district express indifference to or ignorance of any objective, quantifiable methodology in determining value of tax credit housing. We hope to correct this inequity as well during the next legislative session. finally, we are fast at work developing ideas for the 2017 QaP. TdHCa has taken the unprecedented action gathering input at monthly public working sessions. We appreciate the opportunity to gather and exchange ideas a great deal. Much of the focus is on the non-legislative and non-court mandated items such as amenities within an Hoa, poverty rates and other features. Many of the census tracts in our state that meet the current definition of “Hoa” are completely built-out, leaving developers in some counties to all chase the same parcels of land in those areas. This leads to an artificial increase in the price of land and creates a disproportionate need for tax credits to get deals done in those areas—this is not a good use of tax credits when our state has such a drastic need for affordable housing.

in closing i want to thank you all for your support and membership in TaaHP. Too often, members do not see the full benefits of the power of their dollars going to TaaHP. if and when you feel that way, i encourage you to log into our website or call frank Jackson and find out what we are working on in government affairs. i assure you, your money is being well spent looking after your business interests! Please be available next legislative session to testify or help us with other grass-roots support to pass legislation that will help our industry and…enjoy the Conference!
