RAD Practice Day Fall 2016
On November 16, 2016 over 130 housing authorities, lenders, investors, developers, advisers/consultants, counsel, and others joined together in a day-long session with numerous HUD staff and former officials focused on continuing RAD's successful implementation and advancing RAD in the next Administration and Congress.
The day was kicked off by Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (D-OH, member of House Financial Services Committee), who provided spirited encouragement to all to keep working with Congress on RAD and the larger affordable housing agenda - and how to best do that given the recent elections.
Throughout the day, housing authorities and their partners shared insights on making RAD work in their communities, with spotlights on innovative practices in San Francisco, Austin and Greensboro, among others.
HUD's Recap Office team reviewed the latest data on RAD's implementation to date and offered insights on its newly-published guidance on Site & Neighborhood Standards and Relocation affecting RAD new construction and transfer of assistance projects. Practitioners and many HUD staff, including RAD Transaction Managers, the senior Recap Office team and OGC counsel, addressed together a range of implementation matters and the latest developments related to financing and closings, large portfolio conversions, RAD plus Section 18, Mixed-Finance conversions, transfer of assistance best practices, and more.
The day wrapped up with a focus on how to best re-position agencies for the future with RAD and strategies for working with the next HUD and Congress. The agenda, handouts, report outs, and any additional information on the Fall Practice Day can be accessed in the links below.
