Schack Institute of Real Estate
Affordable Housing Finance and Development
The course will serve as an introduction to the development and financing of affordable housing. It will provide an overview of the concept of housing affordability and primarily focuses on the financing tools used for affordable housing. The course will also examine the variety of governmental programs available and how they provide incentives for both private and not-for profit developers to create or preserve affordable housing. The stages of the development process will be explored, including how to get started, and the decisions and steps necessary to successfully complete an affordable housing development. While the course will be heavily weighted towards the NYC market, many of the concepts can be applied nationally.
