RAD: Post-Closing Operational Transition for PBRA
Presenters, Sheryl Putnam and Samantha Sowards

Congratulations, you’ve been approved for a RAD conversion to project-based rental assistance (PBRA). Now that you’ve been approved — or are waiting for approval — what’s next? This session will cover the key differences between public housing, PBRA, and RAD PBRA that you and your team need to know about. We will cover in-place resident considerations, eligibility and occupancy differences, rent phase-in requirements, what to do when TTP is greater than the contract/market rent, and more. We will also touch on some blended occupancy issues if you are adding low-income housing tax credits.

If you're interested in learning more about PBRA, don't miss our upcoming session of Multifamily Housing Specialist! Conference attendees save 10% on the seminar, which will be held immediately following the first two days of the The Housing Conference. Extend your stay and expand your learning! Register online or email sales@nanmckay.com for more information. Don't delay, room blocks are filling up fast.

Topics: blended occupancy, eligibility, LIHTC, occupancy, PBRA, Program News and Notices, public housing conversion, RAD, rent calculation, The Housing Conference
