Our Expertise

We are your LIHTC Specialists.

Karen Graham, CPM, HCCP, SHCM

KAREN GRAHAM has worked for more than 25 years in the same roles that many in her audience do today –– on-site management of LIHTC properties, multi-site management, Director of Compliance (in her case, for over 15,000 LIHTC units in 23 states), and being the go-to person for all things compliance related.

What better person to say "enough already" and make LIHTC compliance training real-world, relevant, easy to understand, and actionable. Karen engages people of every level of experience as she covers everything from basic topics to advanced issues, to what's new and current. Her style is fresh. Her impact is real. Her audiences leave with the knowledge they need and the confidence to put it to use.

Karen holds the designations of Certified Property Manager (CPM®), Housing Credit Certified Professional (HCCP®) and Specialist in Housing Credit Management (SHCM). KAGC’s expertise focuses on assisting partners, owners and managers in the successful management of tax credit housing and LIHTC compliance. A graduate with honors, Karen has a bachelor’s degree in Communication from the University of Cincinnati.
