Deploying State and Local Rental Assistance Subsidies: Project Underwriting Challenges and Creative Solutions

September 28 @ 10:15 am - 11:45 am UTC+7

Session Description: Rental assistance subsidies are an essential part of an affordable housing developer’s toolkit, especially when the goal is to provide deeply affordable homes to people experiencing homelessness. As state and local jurisdictions in Oregon roll out new and expanded rental assistance subsidy programs, how are owners, funders, and lenders working together to deploy these valuable resources—and to ensure projects that use rent subsidies can meet lender underwriting standards? In this roundtable discussion, housing developers, lenders, investors, and public funders will share their practical experiences putting new rent subsidy funds to use. Panelists will discuss technical challenges they have encountered, and creative solutions they have implemented, in projects being developed across the Portland-metro region and the state.

Presenters: Ann Melone, US Bank 

Devin Ellin, Housing Authority of Clackamas County 

Erin Pidot, Joint Office of Homeless Services

Andrea Sanchez, Housing Development Center
