9 Fund technical studies to improve existing methods for detecting and controlling housing-related health and safety hazards, to develop new methods to detect and control these hazards, and to improve our knowledge of housing-related health and safety hazards Results of HHLTS: low cost interventions to reduce moisture intrusion and associated mold problems in urban homes and documenting an improvement in the symptoms of asthmatic children following such interventions; developing improved methods for controlling cockroaches and cleaning cockroach allergen, the development of a scoring system for injury hazards in homes. 9

10 HHDE is designed to develop, demonstrate and promote cost effective, preventive measures to correct multiple safety and health hazards in the home environment that produce serious diseases and injuries in children. 9/grplead.cfm 10

11 The purpose of the LHC Program is to assist states, Indian tribes and local governments in undertaking comprehensive programs to identify and control lead-based paint hazards in eligible privately-owned housing for rental or owner-occupants in partnership with faith-based and community based organizations. Funds the development of infrastructure necessary to undertake comprehensive programs to identify and control lead-based paint hazards in eligible privately owned rental or owner-occupied housing 11

12 This funding will help institutions of higher education expand their role and effectiveness in addressing community development needs in their localities—including neighborhood revitalization, housing, and economic development—principally for low- and moderate- income persons. Ms. Sherone Ivey Deputy Assistant Secretary U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Office of University Partnerships Room 8226, 451 Seventh Street, SW Washington, DC Telephone: (202) 402–4200, Fax: (202) 708–

13 ROSS is designed to link services to public housing residents and recipients under NAHASDA of 1996 by providing grants for supportive services, resident empowerment activities and activities to assist residents in becoming economically self-sufficient. 13

14 Support Intermediary Resident Organizations and certain types of nonprofits to assist site-based resident associations that do not yet have the capacity to administer a welfare-to- work program or conduct management activities. Eligible activities include, but are not limited to: Training board members in community organizing, board development, and leadership skills. Determining the feasibility of and training existing resident groups for resident management. Assisting in the creation of a resident management corporation or developing the management capabilities of an existing resident management corporation. Determining the feasibility of homeownership by residents. 14

15 Promote self-sufficiency among non-elderly families: Offering training on how residents can start their own businesses. Creating credit unions to support the normal financial management needs of residents that often go unmet in low-income areas, such as checking, savings, and loans. Providing job training to prepare residents for specific fields of employment. Developing job placement and linkages to specific employers. Providing supportive services--child care, transportation, and family counseling--to help families take advantage of training and employment opportunities. 15

16 SHOP facilitate and encourages innovative homeownership opportunities through self-help housing where the homebuyer contributes a significant amount of sweat-equity toward the construction of a new dwelling. sing/programs/shop/ 16

17 COPC provides funds to community colleges, 4-year colleges and university to establish and operate CPOC to address problems of urban areas. Examples of activities that successful COPCs have undertaken include: Job training and counseling to reduce unemployment. Resident-backed strategies to spur economic growth and reduce crime. Local initiative to combat housing discrimination and homelessness. Mentoring programs for neighborhood youth. Financial and technical assistance for new businesses. 17

18 EDSR helps eligible doctoral students cultivate their research skills through the preparation of research manuscripts that focus on housing and urban development issues. Eligible applicants include pre-dissertation PHD students whose studies include urban economics as a major or concentration within another field related to housing and urban development. Not funded in FY2009, check back in FY2010.

20 TIHD is a predecessor to IHBG. If not used for its original development purpose, Tribes and TDHEs can request it be reprogrammed to be used for another NAHADSA/IHBG eligible activity and include it in their most recent housing plan. No additional dollars available, just what Tribes were allotted pre-NAHASDA. 20

21 Purchase of an existing home Construction of a home (stick-built or a manufactured home on a permanent foundation) Rehab loans Purchase and rehab Refinancing (Rate and Term, Streamline, Cash Out) Andrea Dunyon, Section 184 Loan Guarantee Program Specialist

22 The borrower leverages IHBG funds to finance affordable housing activities today by pledging future grant funds as security for repayment of the guarantee obligation. A private lender or investor provides the financing and HUD provides the guarantee to the lender or investor. 22

23 23 Affordable housing with supportive services for the elderly. Provides very low-income elderly with options that allow them to live independently but in an environment that provides support activities such as cleaning, cooking, transportation, etc. The program is similar to Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities (Section 811). Type of Assistance: HUD provides interest-free capital advances to private, nonprofit sponsors to finance the development of supportive housing for the elderly. The capital advance does not have to be repaid as long as the project serves very low- income elderly persons for 40 years.

24   Notice PIH (TDHEs), Total Development Costs (TDC) for Affordable Housing under the Native American Housing Assistance and Self- Determination Act of 1996 (NAHASDA) Issued: June 19, A tribe/TDHE can request a variance for a individual project or for an overall adjustment to their current cost limits. If the variance is 110% or less than the published TDC, a tribe/TDHE must provide relevant information and request approval from the Area Office of Native American Programs (ONAP). If the variance is greater than 110%, a tribe/TDHE must provide relevant information and request approval from the Headquarters ONAP. 24

25 This notice strongly encourages PHAs to use solar, wind and other Renewables and other green construction and rehab techniques whenever procuring for maintenance, construction or modernization. The notice was not written for Tribes/TDHEs, but includes numerous techniques and information that is helpful. 25
