Hi Liz,


In the meeting notes please let our friends know about the two programs I talked about. Also, I will be glad to provide a short presentation on the Consolidated Plan and solicit input at the November meeting. Just let me know.


Consolidated Plan

DCA is required to submit a consolidated plan to HUD every five years that shows the state’s housing and community development needs and how DCA plans to utilize our HUD Community Planning and Development formula block grants (Community Development Block Grant, HOME, National Housing Trust Fund, Emergency Solutions Grant, and Housing Opportunities for Persons with HIV/AIDS) to address affordable housing, special needs housing, homelessness, and community development.

We are circulating two surveys – one for the general public and one for organizational partners and service partners. Please share them with your partners! Community Partners Survey and Resident Survey


Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP)

The Draft 2018 QAP is posted on DCA's website. The QAP determines how DCA allocates housing tax credit to assist in building affordable mixed income rental housing.
