The New Hampshire Housing Finance Agency (NHFA) is sponsoring an informal opportunity for managers and property owners to ask questions about compliance with various programs such as the LIHTC, HOME, Section 8 (including TRACS and Special Claims).

While the Asset Management staff welcomes any questions in advance (email to MPoole@NHFA.org.), they absolutely encourage interested persons to bring many more questions on the 29th.  They hope that the Forum results in impromptu discussions to share ideas, experiences, and procedures.
