    State Legislative Round-up: This Year's Bills to Increase Funding for Affordable Development (AB 1335, AB 35, SB 377)

    Join us for our May 2015 Webinar. State Legislative Round-up (AB 1335, AB 35, SB 377)

    THURSDAY, MAY 7, 2015
    12:00 PM online at

    Learn the nuts and bolts of how the following bills will benefit affordable home development and the low income housing tax credit program.

    • AB 1335 (Atkins) – The California Homes & Jobs Act establishes a dedicated source of funding for affordable housing by placing a small fee on real estate documents, excluding home sales.
    • AB 35 (Chiu & Atkins) – AB 35 increases the amount of state Housing Credit available from $70 million to $370 million, thereby leveraging an additional $600 million in federal funds.
    • SB 377 (Beall) – A companion bill to AB 35, SB 377 will allow for certificated state low-income housing tax credits to increase their value by avoiding federal taxation.

    Webinar will be led by:

    Marina Wiant, Policy Director, California Housing Consortium

    Matt Schwartz, President/CEO, California Housing Partnership

    Tyrone Buckley, Policy Director, Housing California

    Our May 2015 Brownbag: From Exterior to Interior

    Working with a Professional Interior Design Firm to Save Time and Money While Building Community with a Team of Professionals

    Oftentimes a design firm is instrumental in keeping General Contractors on schedule, on budget, and save you from costly mistakes in the field. It is advantageous to bring in a design firm early on with the architects and property management teams to encompass a cohesive Community from the Exterior to the Interior.

    You will also be taught how a design firm will select the proper finishes and furnishings for high risk, special needs populations: use fabulous-looking LVP flooring that looks like real wood to warm up the space at a fraction of the cost of tile; add architectural details and lighting that you thought you didn’t have in the budget but found it really didn’t cost as much as you thought; apply fun, fresh paint colors and accent walls to liven up the space; hang art work to give the space personality to feel at home.

    Be pleasantly surprised after working with a professional Interior Design firm when you show up at the job after all of the finishes, architectural details, lighting, furnishings, art work, accessories, and faux plants are installed per the plans, and on time for your Grand opening date.  You will say to yourself – or maybe even out loud – “Wow, this was such an easy and affordable process and it looks fabulous!”

    Our June 2015 Workshop: Stepping Thru Multi-Family Housing - An Overview of ADA Standards

    Multi-family housing is one of the more complex building types. Depending on when the facility was built and where the funds come from and who oversees the project, you can have a multitude of different regulations. In an overview and a scoping sense we will review the ADA Standards, the FHA, UFAS, and California Building Codes both 11A and 11B and compare the requirements for each. We will also touch upon alterations and transition plans and how this affects different types of multi-family housing projects.


    • Understand overall jurisdictions that have requirements for multi-family housing projects
    • Review differences in the scoping between the different agencies
    • Learn about some of the different dwelling unit requirements dependent upon the regulations
    • Overview approaches for new construction versus existing as well as alterations
