  • Fair Housing: Addressing the Issues Facing LIHTC Properties

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits

    NAHB’s webinar, Fair Housing: Addressing the Issues Facing LIHTC Properties, will address several emerging fair housing issues that directly impact property owners and managers under the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, including tenant requests for assistance animals; DOJ’s continued enforcement against LIHTC developers for accessibility violations and HUD’s recently proposed revised disparate impact rules. The level of content in this webinar is for the novice learner.


    Reasonable accommodation claims are skyrocketing, driven primarily by claims by persons with psychiatric or emotional disabilities, including increasing requests for assistance animals. The NAHB webinar, Fair Housing: Addressing the Issues Facing LIHTC Properties, will offer practical guidance on how to identify and address reasonable accommodation requests, including debunking some of the myths that lead managers to believe they can never say “no” to a request.

    The webinar will also provide practical tips on how developers can implement measures in the design and construction process to help mitigate rising claims regarding accessible features for persons with disabilities in over 70 properties financed under the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program.

    HUD’s Implementation of the Fair Housing Act’s Disparate Impact Standard was published on Aug. 19, 2019. The proposed rules appear to make it more challenging for plaintiffs, including fair housing groups, to establish disparate impact claims. The Fair Housing: Addressing the Issues Facing LIHTC Properties webinar will cover how these proposed rules may curtail disparate impact claims including challenges to criminal background policies.

     Participants in this webinar will:

    • Gain an understanding of Fair Housing Act reasonable accommodation, accessibility and disparate impact claims.
    • Understand how the latest guidance, case law and enforcement actions are shaping the fair housing landscape for LIHTC owners and managers.
    • Learn practical tips to evaluate reasonable accommodation requests; mitigate design and construction violations and implement policies that will not result in disparate impact liability.

    NAHB Continuing Education: 1.0 hours of continuing education credit for the HCCP designation and for the following 12 designations: CAPS, CGA, CGB, CGP, CGR, CMP, CSP, GMB, GMR, Master CGP, Master CSP, MIRM.

However, NAHB regularly reviews these products and reserves the right to remove replays that are no longer current.

    In our Accessibility Requirements for Multifamily Housing: Myths and Facts webinar, we’ll discuss what DOJ and NCSHA regulations apply to your portfolio, and what proactive steps you can take to prevent adverse legal action. The level of content in this webinar replay is for the novice learner.

    In recent years, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the National Council of State Housing Agencies (NCSHA) have made significant efforts to encourage owners, developers and management companies to be proactive vs. reactive when it comes to ensuring their multifamily properties meet all federal accessibility requirements and standards.

     With the introduction of the DOJ’s Accessibility Initiative, and NCSHA’s 46 New Best Practices (nearly 10% of which deal directly with accessibility), it’s more important than ever to be aware of, understand, and comply with accessibility requirements.

    In our Accessibility Requirements for Multifamily Housing: Myths and Facts webinar we’ll cover key points to help participants effectively comply with regulations including:

    •  Determining which accessibility regulations impact you and your projects based on your type of funding and date of occupancy.
    • Investigating whether or not your architects correctly designed properties according to Accessibility requirements and, if not, how to correct issues that occurred during or after construction.
    • Reviewing the latest DOJ Accessibility Enforcement Actions against LIHTC, RD, HUD, HOME and conventional properties.
