About the Conference

The HFA Institute will take place as scheduled. In the event any scheduled speakers from federal agencies are unable to participate due to the federal government shutdown, NCSHA will arrange for other knowledgeable experts to speak.

The Institute’s four program-specific conferences will strengthen your understanding of program fundamentals and advanced techniques for administering the Low Income Housing Tax Credit; the HOME Investment Partnerships program; Mortgage Revenue Bonds, Federal Housing Administration and rural housing mortgage insurance; and HUD’s Performance-Based Section 8 Contract Administration initiative.

These premier training events provide an unprecedented chance to network with your peers and receive top-notch education and invaluable advice from key federal officials, leading trainers and consultants, noted industry professionals, and experienced HFA practitioners. Sessions will cover program basics, legislative and regulatory updates, industry perspectives, and solutions to the latest program administration challenges. The conference will also feature great networking events and roundtables open exclusively to HFA staff. It’s a one-of-a-kind opportunity for high-quality, in-depth instruction on these essential HFA programs.
