For more than forty years, UHAB has provided technical assistance, training, and services for Housing Development Fund Corporation(HDFC) cooperatives throughout New York City. UHAB partners with CNYC to offer a special workshop track for HDFCs at the Annual Housing Conference.

The HDFC workshops are:

6. Ask UHAB: Governance and Managing Your Manager

In this interactive class, UHAB staff members will discuss issues your limited-equity HDFC co-op may be facing related to matters of governance of the co-op and working with a manager to handle your HDFC’s business. Topics will include contracts, accountability, and communication between the board and shareholders and the managing agent.

106. Basics for New Co-op Board Members

In this interactive class, UHAB staff members will discuss matter important to any co-op whether HDFC co-ops or other co-ops: basics that every new board member needs to know. This class is appropriate for any co-op shareholder interested in serving on the board or newly elected to their board of directors. Topics that will be addressed included finances, operations and governance — especially participation, community building and decision-making.

206. Wills and Estates Issues in Limited Equity Cooperatives

This class will offer information that will help both board members and shareholders in limited equity cooperatives understand their rights and responsibilities relative to inheritance and transfer of apartments on death. Attorneys will discuss how family members and boards in HDFC cooperatives should proceed after the death of a shareholder, including steps that they can take to avoid having apartments tied up in legal proceedings to settle an estate. Many issues parallel those in conventional cooperatives: Who gets the apartment? Can a board reject an heir? What if maintenance is not being paid? Other issues are unique to HDFCs or to limited equity housing.
