The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) has just released the Veterans Housing and Homelessness Prevention (VHHP) program Draft Guidelines for Round 5.
The VHHP program guidelines were last updated prior to the issuance of the Round 4 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) in May 2018. Main changes to the guidelines for Round 5 include:
Alignment of VHHP developer fee with Uniform Multifamily Regulations developer fee.
Negative points awarded on subsequent applications for developers that do not comply with the Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE) requirements.
Alignment with Multifamily Housing Program guidelines where applicable including per unit loan limits and interest rate reduction.
Modification of site control time period through VHHP Program application award date listed in the NOFA to standardize this requirement across HCD multifamily programs.
Help shape these guidelines - Submit comments by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
