During the month of May 2021, A. J. Johnson will be partnering with the MidAtlantic Affordable Housing Management Association for two live webinars intended for real estate professionals, particularly those in the affordable multifamily housing field. The following live webinars will be presented:
May 12: Basic LIHTC Compliance – This training is designed primarily for site managers and investment asset managers responsible for site-related asset management and is especially beneficial to those managers who are relatively inexperienced in the tax credit program. It covers all aspects of credit related to on-site management, including the applicant interview process, the determination of resident eligibility (income and student issues), handling recertification, setting rents – including a full review of utility allowance requirements – lease issues, and the importance of maintaining the property. The training includes problems and questions designed to ensure that students are fully comprehending the material.
May 25: Interviewing Techniques and Skills for Affordable Housing Managers – One of the most important skills any affordable housing manager can possess is the ability to interview applicants and residents and obtain the information required to determine eligibility – this is also one of the greatest weaknesses of most affordable housing managers. This training has been developed to address that weakness. This three-hour session focuses on the interview process and provides concepts and tools that will aid managers as they conduct their interviews. Techniques apply to all interview settings including initial eligibility interviews, interim certifications, and annual recertifications. The primary emphasis is on the initial eligibility interview since it is so critical to the housing process. The skills taught during this session will also assist managers in detecting fraud and in dealing with third parties when resolving discrepancies.
These sessions are part of the year-long collaboration between A. J. Johnson and MidAtlantic AHMA that is designed to provide affordable housing professionals with the knowledge needed to effectively manage the complex requirements of the various agencies overseeing these programs.
Persons interested in any (or all) of these training sessions may register by visiting either www.ajjcs.net or https://www.mid-atlanticahma.org.
