The Credential - September 2016

September 2016

Chairman’s Message

Greetings, Fellow HCCPs and welcome to the Fall 2016 edition of The Credential

In October 2016, the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program will celebrate its 30th anniversary.   For the past three decades, the program has provided high-quality affordable housing for thousands of individuals, and strengthened communities across the country through economic development and job creation. 

The 2100+ tax credit professionals that we are proud to call active HCCP designees have all played a part in making the LIHTC program the most successful affordable housing program. Thanks for all that you do, and I hope that you all find ways to celebrate this milestone anniversary and to spread the good word about our program.

In this edition of The Credential, we are focused on year-end activities. Articles offer tips on how to budget at your LIHTC property and how to prepare for annual financial audits. From the compliance side, you’ll learn about defining income in our Back to Basics series and find out how major disasters can impact LIHTC properties. Finally, in our spotlights you’ll get the chance to meet HCCP Kimberly Webb Wiggins, HCCP Board of Governors member Bob Landis, and HCCP exam distributor Vivian Probst. 

I’d like to remind you that the 2016 HCCP webinars are free and provide a great way to meet your continuing education requirements.  Our next webinar will focus on income calculations and we are very pleased to have Vivian Probst of The TheoPRO Group teaching the session. The webinar—Every Penny Counts: Calculating Income for Section 42 Projects—will be held Oct. 6 at 2 p.m. Make sure to register today, and use promo code OCTHCCP to do so for free. I hope that you can join.

In service,

Matt Rayburn

Chairman, HCCP Board of Governors
