PART 380 RENTAL HOUSING SUPPORT PROGRAM
SECTION 380.301 TENANT ELIGIBILITY; REQUIRED PERCENTAGE OF SEVERELY LOW-INCOME TENANTS
Section 380.301 Tenant Eligibility; Required Percentage of Severely Low-Income Tenants
Eligible Tenants shall be either Extremely Low-Income Households or Severely Low-Income Households; provided, however, that a Household that is already receiving or will receive Rental Assistance under a federal program shall not be eligible to be a Tenant. At least 50% of the Units for which an LAA or a Developer receives Rental Assistance shall be reserved for Severely Low-Income Households unless the LAA or the Developer is able to demonstrate that there are an insufficient number of Severely Low-Income Households currently residing in the Service Area defined in the Application or the area in which the Project is located, as applicable, who are qualified to become Tenants. The LAA or the Developer must show that it has made extensive, but unsuccessful outreach efforts, including contacting non-profit corporations serving the homeless, disabled, and senior citizens in the Service Area or the area in which the Project is located; contacting public housing authorities with jurisdiction in the Service Area or the area in which the Project is located; and otherwise publicizing the availability of these Units at appropriate locations within and surrounding the Service Area or the area in which the Project is located, such as through advertising in local newspapers, or meetings with community groups. The Applicant must submit this evidence to the Agency with its Application.
