A.J. Johnson will be presenting the Violence Against Women Act – Guidance for LIHTC Properties on August 4, 2022, at 11:00 am (EST). This class will be offered through Colorado Housing and Finance Authority’s chfareach educational programming for affordable housing property owners and managers. An updated link for course registration is included below.
The Violence Against Women (VAWA) Reauthorization Act of 2013 expanded VAWA protections to many different affordable housing programs – including the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) Program. While HUD has provided detailed requirements on VAWA implementation at HUD properties, there has been no uniform guidance for LIHTC owners and managers. A proposal before Congress would legislate that LIHTC Extended Use Agreements contain VAWA requirements. The IRS has not provided guidance and while many state agencies are requiring VAWA plans, they are not providing information on what the plans should look like. This two-hour training – when combined with the course materials- will review VAWA requirements and recommend best practices for developing VAWA plans at LIHTC and other non-HUD properties. The session will be presented by A. J. Johnson, a recognized expert in the affordable housing field and the author of “A Property Manager’s Guide to the Violence Against Women Act.”
