The Iowa Finance Authority will be requiring developers to watch the Tax Credit Developer Training Webinar to meet the 2021 9% QAP requirements noted in Section 220.127.116.11. The webinar was previously recorded for the 2020 LIHTC round. The webinar is linked below and can also be found under 2021 Housing Tax Credit Round.
The 2021 Application package will be available on October 9, 2020 and will include an online application training guide. IFA will confirm the application due date for the 2021 application on October 9, 2020.
Training is mandatory for new or returning developers planning to submit an application for 2021 Housing Tax Credits and who have not been allocated Tax Credits in any state or have not submitted an application to IFA in the three previous 9% LIHTC rounds, 2018-2020, (QAP Section 18.104.22.168).
The Project Developer must view the training webinar. A development consultant cannot meet this QAP requirement for the Project Developer. All other developers' attendance is optional. IFA recommends that any party who will be completing the online application view the training webinar.
