NOTICE OF PUBLIC COMMENT
On the Draft Substantial Amendment No. 4 to the
PY2019 Annual Action Plan
Pursuant to 24 CFR Part 91, the Hawaii Housing Finance and Development Corporation (HHFDC), Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism, State of Hawaii, gives notice that a draft Substantial Amendment No. 4 to the Consolidated Plan Annual Action Plan (AAP) for program year July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020 (PY2019) has been prepared. HHFDC is making the document available for review and comment.
The purpose of the Consolidated Plan and the AAP is to ensure that jurisdictions receiving federal assistance plan for the housing and related needs of low- and moderate-income families in a way that improves the availability and affordability of decent, safe, and sanitary housing in suitable living environments. To receive funding under certain U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs, the State must have a housing strategy that has been approved by HUD.
HHFDC administers HUD’s National Housing Trust Fund (HTF) program and gives notice of a draft Substantial Amendment No. 4 to its PY2019 AAP to identify and incorporate an eligible activity in the County of Maui to utilize PY2019 HTF funds. The County of Maui, as HHFDC’s Subgrantee of HTF funds, intends to award PY2019 HTF funds of $460,570 to the Kaiaulu o Halelea 64 project in Kihei which will provide 64 multi-family rental housing units, seven of which will be targeted to households with extremely low-incomes at or below 30% AMI. The allocation of PY2019 HTF funds to Halelea 64 will replace PY2020 HTF funds that will be re-programmed from the Halelea 64 project to the Kaiaulu o Halelea 56 project, also located in Kihei, Maui.
