Summary Over the past fifteen years, the role of nonprofits in developing housing for those with low and moderate incomes has changed dramatically. Once supporting players, community development corporations, tenant associations, and other nonprofit organizations have now assumed the lead, filling the gap left by shrinking government commitment to become the nation's primary producers of affordable rental and home ownership opportunities. With the growing involvement of these various groups comes a new set of issues and concerns for them to handle, all of which are addressed in this revised and expanded edition of Developing Affordable Housing.
Written by Bennett L. Hecht, a professional with extensive experience in nonprofit real estate development, this comprehensive resource provides cutting-edge tools and strategies for creating long-term stability, meeting community housing needs, and taking advantage of economic opportunities. Demystifying affordable housing development for those considering it for the first time, as well as for those seeking to expand into different types of housing production, it offers invaluable insights into possible financing sources and long-term management strategies that will make planned affordable housing developments effective and successful.
Taking you step-by-step through the entire development process, Developing Affordable Housing, Second Edition covers all the bases, from putting together the development team to determining project feasibility to obtaining site control. Along with details on using Hope 6 funds for neighborhood revitalization programs, it contains a new chapter on joint ventures that includes specifics on limited liability corporations (LLCs). Packed with numerous checklists, step-by-step procedures, sample contracts, and model documents designed to help save time, effort, and expense,
A practical resource that features straightforward guidelines, sound advice, and up-to-date information, this is essential reading for any nonprofit looking to sponsor, own, or manage affordable housing projects.
