Owners and managers must determine the amount of a family’s income before the family is allowed to move into assisted housing and at least annually thereafter. The amount of assistance paid on behalf of the family is calculated using the family’s annual income less allowable deductions. HUD program regulations specify the types and amounts of income and deductions to be included in the calculation of annual and adjusted income. There are five possible deductions that may be subtracted from annual income based on allowable family expenses and family characteristics. The remainder, after these deductions are subtracted, is called adjusted income. Adjusted income is generally the amount upon which rent is based. This training focuses on the calculation of annual adjusted income and will cover in detail the adjustments relating to (1) dependent deduction; (2) child care deduction; (3) disability-related expenses; (4) the elderly deduction; and (5) deductions for medical expenses. The training also includes problems to ensure that the attendees can apply what they learn to actual situations.

Dealing with Tenant Assets
This two-hour course provides a detailed discussion of requirements related to the determination of asset value and income, and is applicable to all federal housing programs, including the low-income housing tax credit, tax-exempt bonds, Section 8, Section 515, HOME, and Public Housing. Multiple types of assets are covered, both in terms of what constitutes an asset and how they must be verified. The course concludes with a series of problems, designed to test the ability of the attendee to determine the value of an asset and calculate the income from that asset.
Compliance with Federal & State Fair Housing Requirements
The course “Compliance with Federal and State Fair Housing Requirements” will equip attendees with the knowledge and understanding needed to avoid fair housing violations. The course curriculum is centered around the regulations in the two major fair housing laws, The Fair Housing Act (Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The course also includes a discussion of the additional state and local protected characteristics. In addition, relevant portions of the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) are covered. The purpose of the Fair Housing Act is to eliminate housing discrimination, promote economic opportunity, and achieve diverse, inclusive communities. Professional fair housing training assists in this mission by ensuring that housing professionals understand both the rights of the public relative to fair housing and the duties and responsibilities of real estate professionals.
The Average Income Minimum Set-Aside: Requirements & Best Practices
The Average Income Minimum Set-Aside Test was added to the LIHTC program in March 2018. While it is being implemented successfully on many properties, there remains a good deal of industry-wide confusion about the use of the AI set-aside and the risks involved. This one-hour live webinar will review the requirements of the AI, discuss the risks of this set-aside, and provide best practice recommendations for implementation of the Average Income test. The Webinar will be presented by A. J. Johnson, a nationally recognized expert on affordable housing who has already provided compliance oversight on multiple properties using the AI set-aside.
Fair Housing Compliance in the Age of COVID-19
This training will provide property managers with guidelines and recommendations for handling COVID-19 fair housing issues. A brief overview of fair housing requirements will be followed by a discussion of how COVID-19 fears may lead to fair housing violations relating to ethnic minorities and the disabled. The relationship between the pandemic and reasonable accommodation requests will be covered, as well as the particular attention that must be paid to potential sexual harassment. Finally, the importance of consistent treatment of applicants and residents will be discussed.
