Whether your property is a Section 8, Rent Supplement, 236, 202, 202/8, 202 PAC, 202/811 PRAC, 231, 221(d)3 or 221(d)3 BMIR, having an income stream that keeps pace with operating costs is key to ensuring the present and future viability of your property and its ability to provide the facilities and services your residents need.

This course takes an in-depth look at:

  • Various rent increase methods available to housing providers
  • Which methods apply to which type of property
  • When and How the Owner can choose their method
  • What to submit with your increase request
  • How to justify line-item increases over 5%

The course will be based on the current Section 8 Renewal Guide, Chapter 7 of the 4350.1 – Processing Budget-Based Rent Increases, and proposed guidance from the Revised 4350.1 Chapter 2.06 – Budget-Based Rent Adjustments.

AHMA-NCH Annual Reverse Trade Show @ Oakland Marriott
May 15 @ 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm

What is a Reverse Trade Show?

Rather than the traditional trade show floor as the primary way for AHMA suppliers to meet AHMA Management companies, this event is focused on pre-set meeting appointments.

Meeting appointments between buyers and suppliers are set before the show. A schedule is set, and both parties are expected to honor their commitment to meet at this event.

One of the great things about this type of show is that by giving focused time with a supplier, the buyer is made more aware of the company’s products and services.  Many studies reveal that consumers often have a totally different perception of what a company offers than do their sales people!
