On February 18th – 21st, Klein Hornig attorneys, Chris Hornig and Dan Rosen chaired two separate panels at the National Housing and Rehabilitation Association’s 2015 Annual Meeting involving more than 200 developers, syndicators, lenders, and other members of the affordable housing community. The various panels focused on multiple issues and challenges facing the affordable housing community today. The three-day meeting was preceded by a one-day “Public Housing Joint Venture Symposium,” which specifically focused on RAD, HOPE VI, CNI, and HUD’s proposed rule on demolition and disposition of public housing projects.
Washington, DC partner, Chris Hornig chaired a panel at the Joint Venture Symposium which looked at the revitalization and recapitalization of HOPE VI properties as they reached the year 15 watershed. Chris specifically discussed the challenges arising from operating subsidy cutbacks and the potential for restructuring though “transformation” remedies or RAD conversion.
At the Annual meeting, Boston partner, Dan Rosen shared his insights providing various information regarding new policies, regulations, and news at HUD. Dan focused his presentation on RAD, Section 8 Porting, and Project-Based Vouchers.
