HOME, Housing Credit, Housing Trust Fund Programs Citizens Participation Processes To Begin Soon

AHFA will conduct a public hearing concerning the draft plans on Thursday, June 27 . Interested parties are invited to submit written or oral comments at the public hearing. Additional written comments will be accepted until 5 p.m. on July 29.

The following are details regarding the public comment and citizens participation process:

  • This process is required by HUD and the IRS
  • Remember that the plans must encompass affordable housing needs statewide
  • All affordable housing stakeholders are invited to provide comments at the public hearing or in writing
  • Prospective applicants are encouraged to:
  • Review the plans in the context of proposed applications
  • Evaluate any proposed project application in the context of the plans
  • Make comments regarding perceived barriers which might affect their application
  • Take the time to explain or justify why your proposed changes to the plans are needed - do not simply cut and paste language from the plans
  • Use AHFA provided formats
  • The 2020 Plan Comment Form will be made available at or after the Public Hearing and will be found at www.ahfa.com

If you have any questions about the citizen participation process, contact the Multifamily Division at ahfa.mf.qap@ahfa.com.
