    Part 1 - What History Teaches Us
    When Shakespeare wrote "What's past is prologue" in The Tempest, he could have been describing the affordable housing predicament in which many low-to moderate-income Americans will find themselves during the 2020s. The land and complex history of the federal government's active involvement in encouraging, incentivizing, directing, financing, and shaping the physical, social, and racial dimensions of housing predates the U.S. Constitution. While millions of Americans today can trace a large percent of their family wealth to real estate equity made possible by these government programs, this wealth has not been evenly distributed. The parallel story of two groups - Native Americans and African Americans - has been much more problematic, as lands were confiscated from the first group to make possible widespread white settlement, while members of the second group were purposefully excluded from participation in many federal housing programs or from predominantly white subdivisions and suburbs that grew out of these programs.

    To be covered in this presentation will not only be this history, but also the federal legislative acts that fostered this inequality- including the Indian Removal Act of 1830, the Homestead Act of 1862, the Standard Zoning Enabling Act, various financial legislative enactments and National Housing Acts, and the formation and programs of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

    This foundation is seen as the history that teaches how to better address the challenges of affordability in a truly committed, serious, comprehensive and equitable manner

    Part 2 - Regulatory Tools
    Once local housing stakeholders have evaluated their housing market and understand the relationship between costs and rents and how federal, state and local policies and programs operate, it is time to examine what tools can be effectively used to increase the supply of affordable housing.

    Among the tools that will be evaluated will be those incentives that expand production, diversify production, or accelerate production. These incentives can be divided into regulatory incentives (such as density bonuses, flexible design criteria, reduced parking requirements, expediated permitting, and as-of-right development) and financial incentives (such as tax abatement, reduced fees, monetary grants and grant of land, and provision of infrastructure).

    • Adam M. Gordon, Fair Share Housing Center, Cherry Hill, NJ

    Part 3 - Financial Tools
    The development cost of affordable housing includes site acquisition, construction or rehabilitation, soft costs, development fees and financing fees. There are operational costs that include not only operation of the units, but also rental assistance.

    These costs can be covered by debt, equity participation and grants.

    This presentation will review Federal Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) to fund construction as well as similar state programs. In addition, tax exempt bonds, HOME loans, CDBG funds, and various federal, state and local programs that can be used in concert to piece together a financial package to cover the acquisition, construction or rehabilitation, soft costs, development and financing costs will be reviewed.
