The Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) is pleased to present our next Hot Topics in Supportive Housing audio-conference, which will focus on policies regarding the federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (Housing Credit) program, a major source of financing for supportive housing development activities across the country. Last year, the Supportive Housing Investment Partnership, a collaboration between Enterprise Community Partners (Enterprise) and CSH, released the first-ever comprehensive look at the innovative policies states have adopted to foster and encourage supportive housing development within their Qualified Allocation Plans (QAPs) for the Housing Credit program. A downloadable PDF version of this report, Using the Housing Credit for Supportive Housing: An Assessment of 2005 State Policies, is still available by clicking here and registrants for this Hot Topics call are encouraged to review this report prior to the call. Enterprise and CSH are now working on an update to this report, analyzing 2007 QAP policies – while this updated report will not be ready for publication until July 2007, we wanted to take this opportunity to preview its findings, and to discuss significant trends and new policies since the 2005 report was completed. Participants will also learn about Washington State’s strategies for supporting the development of supportive housing units within their Housing Credit policies.

Presenters on this call will include:
• James Tassos, consultant and author of the Using the Housing Credit for Supportive Housing reports
• Steve Walker, Washington State Housing Finance Commission
• Stockton Williams, Enterprise Community Partners
• Brigitt Jandreau-Smith, Corporation for Supportive Housing
