Delphine Carnes and Harriet
Reynolds recently represented Franklin Redevelopment and Housing
Authority (“FRHA”) in the rehabilitation of three of its communities,
Berkley Court Apartments (“Berkley”), Pretlow Gardens (“Pretlow”) and
Old Town Apartments (“Old Town”). This project involved using
Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (“LIHTCs”) in conjunction with the Rental
Assistance Demonstration (“RAD”) to successfully renovate and convert
the existing public housing units in these communities to long-term,
project-based Section 8 contracts. Two of the three sites, Pretlow and
Old Town, were combined into one single LIHTC and RAD transaction. These
two complex transactions (Berkley and Pretlow/Old Town) utilized a
variety of financial resources including 9% LIHTC equity, conventional
loans, HOME funds, seller financing and public housing capital funds.
The use of RAD and LIHTC facilitated the successful renovation of FRHA’s
housing communities and also allowed FRHA to establish a funding
resource to address its long-term capital needs.
Crenshaw, Ware & Martin is one of the only firms in
Virginia that has extensive first-hand experience in implementing the
relatively new RAD program to assist public housing authorities in
providing their residents with affordable, high quality housing.
