Additional amendments that CCI will secure in the senate include 1.) tasking the Works Allocation Committee to consider the new policies in HB 1259 when developing the formula that is used to distribute the $128m available in the county block grant and 2.) requiring the state to monitor and report out on what – if any – work support programs are negatively impacted by HB 1259 due to the shifting of dollars to BCA and away from work support programs.

HB22-1282 The Innovative Housing Incentive Program

Tourism, Resorts & Eco. Dvpt.

Support

An amendment was adopted to strike the reference to COVID impacted areas, and clarify that OEDIT can offer these “plus-up” incentives to certain areas of the state based on whether a community has limited economic opportunity, inadequate or poor-quality housing, a lack of housing inventory, and other factors.

Next, the working capital grants offered through the bill include minimum grant awards that is bumped up in coal transition communities, and an amendment was adopted to allow OEDIT to consult with industry experts and stakeholders to consider other areas that might be eligible for a higher grant minimum.

Lastly, an amendment was adopted to prioritize applicants if they are willing to dedicate a portion of their production for purchase by individuals or organizations that provide affordable homeownership opportunities, including opportunities for opportunities that are affordable in the long-term.

HB22-1304 State Grants Investments Local Affordable Housing

Tourism, Resorts & Eco. Dvpt.

Support

Urban counties will have an 80% AMI cap for rental projects, 140% AMI for rural counties, and 170% for rural resort counties. A 140% AMI cap would be applied statewide for for-sale projects. All counties would be able to apply to DOH for re-classification into a different region, or for higher AMI caps based on demonstrated needs. Further, this agreement includes a 50/50 geographic split of funds through December 2023 (50% total to urban counties, 50% to rural/rural resort counties) given that a large majority of state affordable housing funds have historically gone to the metro area.
