Training Schedule & Registration
The N.C. Housing Finance Agency conducts compliance training periodically throughout the year to help owners and managers maintain compliance with the Agency’s affordable housing programs, including Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, Supportive Housing, and Rental Production Programs (RPP) as well as with the requirements of funding sources such as HOME and the N.C. Housing Trust Fund. Tenant eligibility, program rules and regulations, reporting requirements and specific state requirements are just some of the items we focus on in training. The training sessions are regularly updated with changes to the federal and state programmatic regulations as well as any Agency procedural changes and requirements.
To stay abreast of Agency, federal and state changes within the affordable housing industry, attendance at one of the following Agency compliance training is encouraged for:
- New supervisors, on-site managers and leasing personnel
- Experienced staff
- Owners of developments allocated credits or other agency funding
- Personnel responsible for compiling NCHFA reports
- Training is required to meet the provisions under the Qualified Allocation Plan prior to receiving form 8609 under the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program
Throughout the year, we will provide notification of nationally recognized compliance training seminars that are offered within the state, several which offer tax credit or other well-known designations. These national trainers can offer comprehensive training sessions that target a multitude of issues and skill levels.
Compliance 101 training focuses on how to qualify and certify residents for NCHFA properties. The HUD 4350.3 manual is used as the basis for determining eligibility. We will discuss Agency specific procedures and requirements, such as industry updates and compliance monitoring. The training explains what is counted and excluded from income when qualifying applicants and re-certifying residents. The session also covers what to expect during a monitoring review or physical inspection and how to avoid an 8823. We will also review physical inspection standards. Learn how to document eligibility to avoid costly mistakes and practice new skills with exercises. Key program requirements are covered.
Recommended for: Onsite Staff, Compliance Staff, Regional Managers
Advanced Compliance training is a more in-depth look at tax credits as well as other Agency programs. We focus on how to comply with advanced program requirements such as the 140% rule, the Next Available Unit rule and Low/High HOME rent rules. We address Agency reporting requirements to comply and manage a property financed with Agency funds under the LIHTC Program, the HOME Program, Housing Trust Fund, and PLP funds, (rent increase request process; reserve account requirements; how programs fit). We will not discuss eligibility requirements, tenant files or physical inspections during this session. This information is covered in Compliance 101.
Recommended for: Regional Managers, Owners, Compliance Staff, Onsite Staff

Supportive Housing training will focus on the basic program requirements, completing the Qualified Tenant Roll, Rent Increases and Reserve Accounts. Compliance 101 designed specifically for the Supportive Housing Program will be provided. This training is required of all new awards. Key program requirements are covered.
