The California Tax Credit Allocation Committee (TCAC) has issued guidance for compliance monitoring and management functions because of COVID-19. TCAC is cancelling all scheduled inspections until April 30, 2020. Starting in May, 2020, TCAC will conduct desk audits with physical inspections to occur at a later date.
Day-to-day operation of a property is considered an essential business practice that must continue despite shelter in place and stay at home orders. TCAC has several recommendations to perform essential business functions and protect the safety of on-site staff and residents including having an emergency protocol plan, limiting office hours and having a sign-up sheet, posting a sign on the window or door of the office about how to apply, and having an online application or drop box to pick up and drop off applications.
