North Dakota Housing Finance Agency (NDHFA) will open the federal Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) and National Housing Trust Fund (HTF) plans to public comment in early March. Additionally, NDHFA will partner with the ND Dept. of Commerce to make the HOME Investment Partnerships Program’s Annual Program Distribution Statement and the Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) available for public comment in March as well.
The LIHTC and HTF plans will be published on NDHFA’s website by March 1, 2021. The deadline for written comments will be March 31, 2021. Public hearings for the plans are scheduled for April 1, 2021.
The HOME program statement will be published on NDHFA’s website on Feb. 22, 2021. A public input meeting will be held on March 10, 2021.
The CAPER will be open for public comment from March 1-16, 2021. No public meetings are required for the report.
LIHTC encourages private sector investment in affordable housing through tax incentives. The HTF’s purpose is to increase and preserve the supply of housing for extremely low-income households, including homeless individuals and families. HOME encourages partnership between government entities and the private sector to make affordable housing available to low-income persons. ND’s CAPER summarizes the accomplishments of the HOME, HTF, Community Development Block Grant and Emergency Shelter Grant programs for the previous program year.
