Montgomery County Housing Advisory Board

Permanent Supportive Housing
Letter of Intent

The Montgomery County Housing Advisory Board (HAB) advises and makes recommendations to the Montgomery County Board of County Commissioners (BCC) on issues affecting affordable housing development and assists the County in developing new programs and policies in order to foster the development and preservation of attainable housing. Although the HAB’s approval is not statutorily required, the practice of the BCC has been to use the HAB and its field of experts to review proposals for bond issues and state tax credits and make recommendations on the projects to them.

As part of this process, the HAB is responsible for evaluating requests for projects who wish to compete for funding in the Permanent Supportive Housing pool for tax credits who request Continuum of Care (CoC) first or second priority; and requires applicants to submit a letter of intent for Board review prior to submission of a HAB application. Applicants will be notified in writing if the proposed project has met the established criteria to submit an application to the HAB by Friday, January 6, 2017. 

Compensation in the PSH pool will be limited to developments demonstrating support from the applicable Continuum of Care (CoC) evidences in a letter of support.  OHFA will award 25 points to PSH proposals identified as the highest priority of the applicable CoC.  Fifteen points will be awarded to proposals identified as the second priority of the applicable CoC.  The CoC must clearly indicate the rank of the proposal in the required letter of support at the time of the application.

Please submit letters of intent to Jenny Lesniak at lesniakj@mcohio.org.  For additional questions call 225-4631.
