KYHMIS Annual Invoice Process Reminder
In late June, all agencies in the Lexington CoC and the Balance of State CoC who use the KYHMIS database will receive an Annual Invoice for User Licenses from Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC). The Louisville CoC will process their own invoices for their member agencies. The KHC invoice will reflect the number of users currently activated in the system. All agencies are reminded of their responsibility to review the number of licenses and make any necessary adjustment recommendations to the KHC KYHMIS staff. Send a Help Desk ticket with details on the increase or decrease in the number of licenses needed for the upcoming Fiscal Year and the names of the persons holding the licenses. KHC will use the number of users in the system to generate the Annual Invoice.
 
Annual Invoices will be sent from the online  PNC Payment System in an email to the designated agency contact person. All agencies are reminded of their responsibility to enroll in the PNC Payment System, to enter their banking information so electronic payment may be made, and to confirm the appropriate contact person who should receive the emailed Annual Invoice. Payment of the Annual Invoice must be made by electronic deposit through the PNC Payment System. Paper checks will no longer be accepted and, if received by KHC, will be returned to the agency uncashed.
 
Please contact the KYHMIS  Help Desk with any questions or call 502-564-7630, extension 446.

Echo Hill Apartments Grand Opening
On May 12, 2017, Jeremy Ratliff, managing director of Multifamily Programs and Asset Management, spoke during the Echo Hill Apartments ribbon cutting ceremony in Vanceburg, Kentucky. Echo Hill is a beautiful mixed income property provides 40 units of safe, affordable, energy-efficient housing for Project-Based Section 8 recipients in the Commonwealth. For this project, KHC allocated $512,757 in Housing Credits, which will be leveraged into over $5 million in equity from Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing.
 
Properties like Echo Hill demonstrate just how economically beneficial and aesthetically pleasing renovating older properties can be, creating places for new residents to call home and providing sustainable housing to future generations.
