The AIA Las Vegas Affordable Housing Committee is proud to feature a special guest for our August zoom meeting. We will welcome Audra Hamernik, President and CEO of Nevada HAND. Nevada HAND is the largest nonprofit developer, builder, and manager of affordable housing for seniors and working families in our state. Ms. Hamernik will share her insights on the current challenges and opportunities in affordable housing development, especially for households earning around 60% of the area median income (AMI). She will also talk about how Nevada HAND works with the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program and how we can collaborate and advocate for affordable housing in our community.
Audra has a wealth of experience and expertise in the affordable housing field. Before joining Nevada HAND, she served as Executive Director for the Illinois Housing Development Authority, as Principal of A. Hamernik & Associates, Inc., and as Executive Director of Bluestem Housing Partners. She is also actively involved in various housing-related committees, councils, boards, and coalitions at the local, state, and national levels.
