2016 National Housing Trust Fund Action Plan
[46 Pa.B. 2643]
[Saturday, May 21, 2016]
The Housing Finance Agency (Agency) is the entity designated by law for the administration of the National Housing Trust Fund (NHT) enacted as part of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (Pub.L. No. 110-289) to provide funding for housing for very low and extremely low income households. The NHT is administered through the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HUD has announced funding for the Commonwealth in the amount of $3,862,285 for Fiscal Year 2016. HUD requires that the Agency adopt an NHT Action Plan for the administration of NHT. The NHT Action Plan must be included in the Consolidated Plan and Action Plan prepared and disseminated by the Department of Community and Economic Development (Department) for the allocation of certain Federal community development programs.
The Agency is announcing its preliminary plan, the 2016 NHT Action Plan, for distribution of NHT dollars available to the Commonwealth for 2016 and inviting public comment. The Agency will administer the NHT funds through the State housing trust fund established under the act of November 23, 2010 (P.L. 1035, No. 105) (the Pennsylvania Housing and Rehabilitation Enhancement Program (PHARE)).
In accordance with the requirements of HUD and the requirements of the PHARE program, the Agency is providing notice of the 2016 NHT Action Plan and inviting public comment. The 2016 NHT Action Plan is available on the Agency's web site at www.phfa.org.
Persons who would like to comment on the 2016 NHT Action Plan may provide comments in writing only to the National Housing Trust Fund c/o PHFA, 211 North Front Street, Harrisburg, PA 17101. Comments are due no later than 2 p.m. on July 5, 2016.
There will be separate notice provided through the Department regarding the substantial amendment to the 2016 Action Plan and Consolidated Plan, as required by HUD, and an additional opportunity for citizen participation will be provided in that notice. See 46 Pa.B. 2561 (May 21, 2016).
