Income determination & eligibility workshop (June 22 session)

After a successful two-part series on fair housing marketing and lotteries earlier this spring, MHP has expanded the post-development occupancy series to include two sessions on determining income and eligibility for applicants of affordable housing.

Led by Jen Borland of Spectrum Enterprises, Inc., the two workshops will focus on how to determine income and eligibility for applicants of non-Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) financed affordable housing units.  Sessions are designed for potential and current lottery/monitoring agents, non-profit rental owners and managers, municipal and regional housing staff, and rental management staff. 

Attendees of the workshops will receive a certification of attendance. This certification, combined with Certified Occupancy Specialist or other income determination training, will meet the qualifications of most organizations to conduct affordable homeownership and rental lotteries and lease-ups.

This event is sponsored by the Massachusetts Housing Partnership (MHP), MassHousing, Citizen Housing and Planning Association (CHAPA) and the state Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD).
