Under the leadership of Barbara Leibold and Joy Otsuki, our firm’s expertise in affordable housing includes projects/programs involving low and moderate income housing set aside funds, federal HOME and CDBG funds, low income housing tax credits, HELP funds, NSP and other public and private financing sources. We have assisted city and our former redevelopment agency clients in the formulation of a variety of affordable housing programs, including first time homebuyer and other down payment assistance programs, owner-occupied and rental rehabilitation loan/grant programs and rental assistance programs. We have negotiated and prepared agreements for affordable single family, multi-family, senior housing, and single room occupancy projects. Our housing law experience also includes preparation and review of affordable housing strategies, housing fund deficit reduction and expenditure plans, replacement housing plans, replacement and inclusionary housing strategies, density bonus ordinances and density bonus agreements, and Housing Element compliance.
