Construction Start-Date Reminder 
Current Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC) policy requires all projects receiving HOME/AHTF funding (including GAP and Houseworks) to have activities approved prior to starting construction or rehabilitation. This single point-of-failure could create lengthy delays in your project and could possibly result in the eventual denial of a project. If KHC determines that construction began before we approve(d), you will receive a denial and/or cancellation for the activity, which will require you to submit a new activity for approval. 
KCADV Training Institute Webinar
New leasing protections for survivors of domestic violence, dating  violence, stalking, and sexual violence became law on June 29, 2017. The Lexington Fair Housing Council and the Kentucky Coalition Against Domestic Violence (KCADV) are offering three free webinars about the new state law in August and in September. The 90-minute webinar will review the legal rights of protected tenants under this new law, as well as additional federal protections already available to victims living in all kinds of federally subsidized housing under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).

To register online, please visit KCADV's website. For additional information about the KCADV Training Institute, please contact Isela Arras, director of training for KCADV, at 502-209-5382, extension 12; or email
VAWA Lease Addendum 
All leases with the Continuum of Care (CoC), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), HOME Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (HOME TBRA), and Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) programs should include U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Form 91067. This document is the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Lease Addendum and is located on the Housing Contract Administration (HCA) Help Desk . This is not one of the forms that is available in the CoC, ESG, or HOME TBRA toolkits. This document indicates that it expired on June 30, 2017. However, it is recommended that this form be used until Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC) has been notified by HUD of a new form to replace this one.
For HOME TBRA, this lease addendum is in addition to the HOME TBRA Lease Addendum. So, agencies administering HOME TBRA will have two (2) addendums for that program until these documents have been combined.
If you have any questions, please submit a request or call toll-free in Kentucky at 800-633-8896 or 502-564-7630, extension 446; TTY 711.
