NHCD has new procedure for affordable housing programs

Thursday, January 17, 2019 by Tai Moses

Neighborhood Housing and Community Development has a new application and review process for affordable housing developers. Developers who are participating in the Rental Housing Development Assistance or Ownership Housing Development Assistance programs may now submit applications at any time, to be reviewed quarterly. Other significant changes are a result of input from the affordable housing community, according to NHCD community development manager James May, who said in a statement that the new procedures incorporate “nearly 40 suggestions from developers, nonprofits, advocacy groups, and individual citizens. Some addressed procedural questions or program misconceptions that we were able to clarify and correct.” The newly revised guidelines for both RHDA and OHDA, as well as the common Housing Development Assistance application are online at NHCD’s Resources for Developers website. NHCD will continue to review and revise the guidelines in response to input from stakeholders. May noted, “We intend to address all comments in the coming months and, where necessary, revise the guidelines for both programs before the end of the fiscal year.”
