On this week’s Tax Credit Tuesday podcast, Michael J. Novogradac, CPA, is joined by Rich Larsen, CPA, a partner in Novogradac’s Toms River, New Jersey, office. They discuss how public housing authorities (PHAs) are being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic including challenges, innovations and how they’re handling inspections and other compliance issues. Then, they talk about the CDC’s rental eviction moratorium and how that has affected property owners and tenants. Next, they share insight into concerns affordable housing advocates have about the eviction moratorium. They then discuss issues PHAs will face in 2021 and what PHAs can do now to prepare for the years ahead. Next, they talk about trends and changes that are particular to 2020, and what PHAs should consider when looking into RAD. They wrap up with insight into the 2021 edition of the RAD Handbook, the upcoming Novogradac 2021 RAD Public Housing Virtual Conference and the January public housing authorities issue of the Novogradac Journal of Tax Credits.
