Montgomery County Housing Advisory Board

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 recommendation on the projects to them.

Competition in the Service Enriched Housing – Housing Tax Credits pool includes developments seeking support from the Continuum of Care (CoC). The Dayton/Montgomery County CoC may submit up to two permanent supportive housing (PSH) proposal applications for consideration of an award. The CoC must clearly indicate the rank of the proposal (primary or secondary) in the required letter of support at the time of the application.
