The attorneys who specialize in the area of affordable housing represent and advise developers on various issues related to affordable housing, including Council on Affordable Housing (COAH) regulations and procedures, municipal affordable housing ordinances and fair share plans, builders remedy lawsuits, and financing for affordable housing developments, such as state funding and the federal low income housing tax credit program.
