"I have three buildings which were financed by Masslandlords members I met at events. They are all holding first position mortgages with great rates and a small down payment. The connections I have made over the years have literally been priceless."

    Worcester Wed 1/8: Worcester Grant Programs for Deleading, Rehab; Member Choice: Opportunity Zones

    5:30 PM-9:00 PM
    01/08/2020
    Worcester Technical High School
    1 Skyline Dr, Worcester, MA 01605, USA

    Part I: Worcester Grants for Deleading, Rehab

    The City of Worcester has an extensive array of programs available to grant or loan funds for variety of rental housing purposes. This will be a quick
    run-down of all the programs you should know about if you invest or may invest in Worcester.

    The Worcester Housing Now program combines resources from a variety of programs targeting owners and managers of residential rental real estate:
    Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Funding, Lead Abatement Funding, Affordable Housing Now Loan Fund, Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation Funding,
    Monthly Sanitary/Building Code classes, the Multifamily Rehabilitation and Maintenance Guide, the Housing Development Advisory Committee,
    and monthly housing topic videos on the City website and YouTube channel.

    This part of the presentation will be given by Jim Brooks, Director of Housing Development and Healthy Homes,
    Executive Office of Economic Development – Housing Development Division, City of Worcester.

    Part II: Qualified Opportunity Zones

    The Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017 granted states the power to define
    Qualified Opportunity Zones, which offer tax-deferred
    or tax-free investment opportunities to
    landlords and businesses alike. Massachusetts created opportunity zones everywhere!

    We’ll review the opportunity zone process, show areas in your neck of the woods that will qualify,
    and discuss how to plan and execute a fund. Attendees, especially those interested in additions, remodels, and
    new construction will leave with valuable practical knowledge about this new tax incentive.

    This part of the presentation is MassLandlords repertoire. It will be given by
    Steve Thebodo of O’Connor, Maloney & Company, P.C.
    Steve started with them in 2001 and became a shareholder of the firm in 2016.
    He provides clients with tax advice and preparation services, financial statement preparation, accounting,
    auditing and consulting services. He graduated from Assumption College in 2000 with a Bachelor’s
    Degree in accounting. Steve is past president of the Worcester Young Businessman’s Association and
    Spencer Exchange Club. He is the treasurer of Girl’s, Inc. of Worcester and continues to serve as a
    board member of the Spencer Exchange Club. Steve was named to Worcester Business Journal’s 40 Under Forty in 2013.

    Holyoke Thu 1/9: Section 8, Member Choice TBA

    5:30 PM-9:00 PM
    01/09/2020
    Delaney House
    3 Country Club Rd, Holyoke, MA 01040, USA

    Part I: Section 8

    Rental subsidies like the Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) can be great programs to participate in. But they can be tough
    on the unprepared landlord! Come learn about how Section 8 and programs like it operate. Learn why in Massachusetts (unlike in other
    states), landlords cannot refuse to participate in the program.

    We’ll be covering the Section 8 process, the legal background on how the program came to be, and how to screen Section 8 applicants
    without discrimination and without handing the keys to a mystery. We’ll also cover inspections, allude to project-based vouchers,
    and explain what happens if your insurance says, “No Section 8” (hint: your insurance gets in trouble).

    This part of the presentation will be given by MassLandlords staff in cooperation with John Fisher, author of the Property Management Manual
    (the one we sell at the desk) and trainer at Wayfinders, and Melvin Arocho, Compliance Officer
    at the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination. We will also talk about a new program designed to help families
    attain self-sufficiency and eventually graduate from programs like Section 8.

    Part II: Member Choice TBA

    We’re holding this slot for educational content requested by members. What questions have you had lately? Know someone who would make a great speaker without a sales pitch? Email us at hello@masslandlords.net. Tell us which location you want to attend (if it’s not already clear from your ticket purchase history.)

    Topic will be decided and announced shortly based on your suggestions.
