    • Patrick sheaSupervisory project managerUS Dept. Housing and Urban Development
      HUD Section 8 Contract Renewals
    • HUD Portland MFH Portfolio
      The Portland MFH Program Center has jurisdiction for the States of Oregon and Idaho.
      The Portland MFH Portfolio consists of approximately 580 projects of all HUD program types, which are monitored by 8 HUD Project Managers.
       There are 276 contracts with 9,922 units of project based Section 8 in Oregon, which are administered by Oregon Housing & Community Services (OHCS). 
      In Idaho there are 119 contracts with 3,786 units of project based Section 8, which are administered by Idaho Housing Finance Association.
      A subset of the Portland Section 8 Portfolio is the Housing Finance Agency (HFA) Section 8 contracts funded under Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 883.
    • HUD Portland MFH Portfolio
      In Oregon, there were 122 projects and 4, 085 units of Section 8 generated under the 883 program.
      In Idaho, there 60 projects and approximately 2,000 units of generated under the 883 program.
      Both OHCS & IHFA have been significant partners with HUD in generating the bond financed mortgages over 30 years ago, while HUD has funded the Section 8 Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) contracts for these projects for the same period. 
      These 883 projects, whose mortgages and Section 8 contracts began to expire concurrently in 2006 and will continue to do so for until 2013 in Oregon and 2020 in Idaho. 
    • 883 Contracts
      This panel will focus on the Oregon Experience, but the lessons learned could be applied to other 883 Portfolios in the Nation.
      Contract expiration and mortgage maturity date are generally within 90 days of one another
      Two versions of 883 HAP contracts exist:
      Old Regulation 883 – pre 1981
      New Regulation 883 – post 1981
      May 10
    • The HUD Role
      For Acquisition & Rehabilitation Transactions HUD will:
      Participate in Scoping Meetings to Identify Potential Challenges and Clarify Roles
      Coordinate with the OHCS, as the Performance Based Contract Administrator (PBCA) on Section 8 Contract Renewal Process
      Hold Additional Meetings with Industry Partners in the Transaction for update status and review timelines.
      Process the Determinative Criteria Review Submission
      The Determinative Criteria Review is the HUD Approval of the Transaction for Noninsured Projects with Section 8 HAP Contracts.
      HUD will approve new 20 year term Contract for Preservation Purposes.
    • OHCS Role
      Similarly, For Acquisition & Rehabilitation Transactions OHCS will:
      OHCS, as the mortgagee must approve the prepayment of the bond financed mortgage.
      The Prepayment of the OHCS Mortgage can trigger the early termination of the 883 Old Regulation contracts.
      Participate in Scoping Meetings to Identify Potential Challenges and Clarify Roles
      OHCS, as the PBCA will process the Section 8 Contract Renewal under Multifamily Assisted Housing Reform and Affordability Act of 1997 (MAHRA) Guidelines.
      OHCS will underwrite the new permanent financing.
      OHCS will issue Section 42 LIHTC as part the permanent financing.
    • Timelines
      The Section 8 Contract Expiration Date drives the process, because of the need to have new permanent financing in place with Initial MAHRA Contract Renewal effective date.
      Sellers and Buyers should be communicating at least Two Years before the Contract Expiration.
      The early termination of the Old Regulation 883 contract must be factored into the process, if OHCS allows prepayment of the mortgagee.
      There is the required 1 year notice to tenants of the contract expiration.
      In the sale of a project to a Nonprofit the required notice period to tenants of contract expiration is 6 months.
      The OHCS timelines associated with the competition for Section 42 LIHTC must be considered.

      The Transactions were more simple 30 years ago.
      Project Owners
      OHCS – Bond Issuer & Mortgage
      Bond Holders
      OHCS – Traditional Contract Administrator
      HUD – Funding the Subsidy Contract
    • Acquisition & Rehabilitation Players
      Things are not so simple now to Preserve Section 8 Contracts.
      Interim Finance, such Network for Oregon Affordable Housing
      OHCS – Bond Conduit Issuer
      Bond Holders
      Tax Credits Investors
      Gap Finance, such HUD CPD, OHCS, City of Portland
      OHCS - PBCA
      HUD – Funding the Subsidy Contract
      Nonprofit Industry Partners
    • Successful Preservation Transactions
      Despite the challenges briefly described here, HUD, OHCS & Our Industry Partners have been successful in Preserving the Project Based Section 8 Contracts, while providing for physical rehabilitation of the projects and generating stable financing for future.
      Of the original 4,085 units of the 883 Section 8
      • 1,083 units Preserved for the Long Term
      • 798 units – Owners have chosen to stay in the Section 8 Program
      • 1, 934 unit – Contract Expiration Not Yet Occurred
      • 270 units – Lost to Contract Opt Out
      The Oregon Experience has provided value lessons in how to Preserve Project Based Section 8 Contract and position the projects for another generation.

      limited OHAF take-out strategies
      Less capital—both tax credits and perm debt
      Planned financial structures not viable (bonds/4% credits)
      More rigorous borrower financial capacity requirements
      Geographic limitations on capital
      Project scale limitations
      Buyers need even more capital
      Acquisition prices
      Closing costs
      Predevelopment expenses
    • Preservation Challenges
      Sellers waiting for markets to recover
      Buyers risk averse
      Reliance on future public sector resources
      More interim financing needed
    • Preservation Challenges
      Economy has slowed progress

      Creative interim solutions will be required
    • MA LeonardVP & Impact Market LeaderEnterprise Community Partners
      Tax Credit Equity and Preservation
    • Radical Changes in Market

      The Discriminating Investor
      Size Matters
      No tolerance for Risk
      In today’s market, investors call the shots
    • Pricing
      Returns have risen rapidly since 2007
      Prices have taken a corresponding drop
      Syndicators do not buy “on spec”
      Losses are no longer as attractive
    • Underwriting Considerations
      Level of Rehabilitation
      Needs to be rehabilitated such that is will not need additional rehabilitation for 15 years
      Light, moderate and substantial rehabilitation
      Sponsor-Investor Fit – talk to your investor early
      Serious Capital Needs Assessment
      Determine Scope prior to Setting Purchase price
    • Underwriting Considerations
      Revenue and Subsidy Risk
      Rent levels
      Duration of Contract
      Termination Risk
    • Underwriting Considerations
      Credit Delivery
      Critical to have same understanding as your investor
      Know start date
      Understand delivery dates
      Ideal project from a delivery perspective
    • Additional Thoughts
      Preservation is good policy
      Deal type
      FHA Loans
      Seller Stays in deal
      Early delivery / Late pay helps pricing

    • Cedar Sinai Park’s Mission
      Cedar Sinai Park provides residential and community-based care to our elders and adults with special needs, allowing them to live with comfort, independence and dignity in a manner and in an environment based on Jewish values.
    • CSP’s Continuum of Services
    • Motivations for the Preservation
      • Seller – As business model moved in another direction, the seller was motivated by maintaining continuity in service to the community and in promoting the growth of a community not-for-profit organization.
      • Buyer – CSP was motivated by the opportunity to increase service to the community, make affordable housing more appealing to its historical constituency and participate in the creation of a housing with services model that would help low income elders and people with disabilities to remain independent for as long as possible.
      • Statutory Agencies – Prevention of the conversion of the Rose Schnitzer Tower to private apartments or hotel space assured continuity of services and quality of life for 250 low income residents.

    • Rose Schnitzer Tower Assessment
      Sample Description
      • Approximately 130 residents were assessed, with a response rate of over 50% in each of the language groups. 
      • The summary report does not include the Farsi and Korean speakers.
      • The mean age of the entire sample was 74 years.
      • Russian residents were significantly older than other groups (mean age of 82.3).
      • The Chinese residents are composed of Mandarin and Cantonese speakers, who tend to differ in immigration and socio-economic characteristics.
    • Rose Schnitzer Tower Assessment
      Summary of Illness Status
      • RST residents reported a mean total of 4.4 illnesses per person (range of 0 – 10 illnesses).
      • Russian and English residents reported significantly more illnesses per person than the Chinese.
      • 23% of the English, 30% of the Russian speakers and only 2 Chinese residents reported insufficient resources to pay for medical expenses. 
      • Russian speakers also report a larger number of illnesses that interfere with their activities than do the other groups.
      • The top ten illnesses reported by resident groups suggest targets for intervention.
    • Rose Schnitzer Tower Assessment
      Medication Use of RST Residents
      • The mean number of prescribed medications was 6.28 per resident with a range of 0 – 22 (not including over the counter medications, vitamins or non-Western medications).
      • 35% of residents do not have a workable strategy for remembering to take their medications on time and in the correct dosage.
      • Residents frequently reported voluntarily altering their prescription regimens.
      • Implications: voluntary and involuntary non-adherence leading to hospitalization and institutionalization, increased morbidity and mortality, falls increase with more than 4 medications due to interactions.
