Public Hearing on the Substantial Amendments to the 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan for the National Housing Trust Fund (NHTF) and for the HOME Program; and

a Substantial Amendment to the 2015 Annual Action Plan for the HOME Program;

and a Substantial Amendment to the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Disaster Recovery “Sandy” Action Plan

In compliance with the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) rules, which requires the State to develop a Consolidated Plan, the Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA) proposes availability of draft Substantial Amendments to the 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan, which was submitted to HUD on July 31, 2015. One substantial amendment to the Five Year plan incorporates the National Housing Trust Fund (NHTF) into the Consolidated Plan. The NHTF was created by the Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA) of 2008. IHDA was designated by Governor Bruce Rauner as the State agency for administering NHTF. The Substantial Amendment provides additional information on how the State will administer and distribute the NHTF to eligible applicants statewide. The NHTF Annual Allocation Plan was previously submitted to HUD as part of the 2016 Action Plan.

Another substantial amendment to the 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan regarding the HOME Program addresses the shift in funding to Multi-family production from Single-family under the HOME program.

The Substantial Amendment to the 2015 Consolidated Plan Annual Action Plan addresses the one-year shift in funding amounts and production from HOME Single-family to HOME Multi-family, as addressed in the HOME Substantial Amendment to the Five-Year Plan.

The Public Hearing will also address a substantial amendment to the Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery “Sandy” Action Plan. The amendment proposes a change in funding from Housing to Public Infrastructure activities.

The draft documents will be available to the public by Monday, July 25, 2016. The NHTF Amendment and the HOME Program amendments can be reviewed at http://www.ihda.org. For more information on the “Sandy” Disaster Recovery Plan, go to DCEO’s website at CEO.CDBG@illinois.gov or 217/782-7500. The public comment period will begin on Monday, July 25, 2016, and end Thursday, August 25, 2016.

The public hearing will be held at the Illinois Housing Development Authority, 401 N. Michigan Ave., 7th Floor Board room in Chicago on Tuesday, August 9, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. and via televideo-conferencing at the following 2 locations: Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO)-4th Floor Conference Room, 500 East Monroe, Springfield; and the Illinois State Regional Office Building-Conference Suite 106, 2309 West Main Street, Marion. All three offices are fully accessible to persons with physical disabilities. Parking is also available nearby. Persons are welcome to provide public comments prior to, at, or after the public hearing. Those individuals interested in giving oral testimony or comments at the public hearing must register prior, and bring a written summary of comments to the public hearing to ensure that concerns receive a written response from the State. The time allotted each respondent may be limited, based on the number of individuals registered to speak. Other written comments (without oral testimony) are also welcomed for presentation at the public hearing or mailed directly to IHDA. Hearing-impaired and sight-impaired individuals in need of services such as an interpreter or documents in large-print/Braille are asked to make requests directly to IHDA at the telephone numbers below at least three (3) days before the public hearing. IHDA will make reasonable efforts to accommodate such requests. To obtain additional information concerning these public hearings, please call (217) 785-6142 or TDD/TTY (312) 836-5222. All written public comments must be received at IHDA by close of business on Thursday, August 25, 2016. IHDA anticipates submitting the final NHTF Amendment to HUD by Monday, August 29, 2016.
