DMMHA Replacement Housing Proposal Presentation on Proposed Replacement Housing Factor Fund October 25, 2010
History of 5h Homeownership Program HUD approval of original 5h plan on 9/22/92 HUD approval of amendment (narrative revisions) to 5h plan on 6/22/95 HUD approval of amendment (programmatic revisions) to 5h plan on 5/31/00. This is the plan the department currently operates off of MHGB approval of current 5h plan on 2/21/00 by roll call
Definition of Replacement Housing Factor Funds The Replacement Housing Factor (RHF) is a Public Housing development fund from U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) available as a result of the sale of the Des Moines Municipal Housing Agency (DMMHA) scattered site housing units These funds can only be used to develop or acquire new public housing units or the funding must be returned to HUD. This is a fund separate from the Affordable Housing Development Fund.
Definition of Need The Polk County Housing Continuum (PCHC), the City of Des Moines Consolidated Plan and Des Moines Municipal Housing Agency show that there is a need for: Affordable Housing units Larger bedroom units within the Public Housing inventory (3 and 4 bedrooms) Eliminating blighted Public Housing units
Proposed Plan Construction of ten (10) to twenty (20) single family homes to be located on existing property owned by the Agency over 5 years. Demolish the most blighted Agency owned properties (5h and Disposition) Construct new single family homes with two (2) to four (4) bedrooms, one (1) to one and a half (1 ½) baths, unfinished basement and/or a single car garage. These replacement houses shall complement the existing housing stock within their respective neighborhoods and be Energy Star rated. The Agency will strive to have no more than two (2) Public Housing homes within a four block radius. (De-concentration)
Supportive Services Occupants would need to meet HUD and DMMHA Public Housing admissions policies and guidelines. The intent of this supportive services portion of the proposal is to transition families to self-sufficiency - Cannot require participation Example of some supportive services offerings are: Daycare support to attend classes or job training courses Emergency financial support related to transportation needs (personal vehicle repairs, bus vouchers, etc.) Dependents that need tutoring supportive services to be at or above grade level Continuing education/Job training (GED, Associates Degree, Skilled Trade training or similar professional development program) Personal financial management classes Home care/preventative maintenance classes Other supportive services based on individual needs of family
