2010 Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) Application Workshop - January 19, 2010. See the Event Calendar for location and time.
On December 19, 2009, the Legislature approved some additional spending reductions to help close an estimated $1.6 billion budget gap for FY 2010. Included in the most recent budget plan were $4.8 million in fund transfers and spending reductions from the Arizona Department of Housing’s current year budget, including more than $2.4 million in Housing Trust Funds. Together with reductions passed in July, ADOH’s non-federal budget for FY 2010 has been reduced by more than 36 percent.
Combined with the $4.5 million in reductions passed earlier this fiscal year, $32.9 million in FY 09 and $13.4 million in FY 2008, ADOH resources have contributed more than $55 million to the state General Fund over the past three fiscal years. Additionally, in a November special session, the Legislature enacted a provision restricting the Housing Trust Fund’s annual distribution from Unclaimed Property revenues to $10.5 million per year.
When the Legislature convenes on January 11, 2010, they will continue to consider additional spending reductions for the current fiscal year and begin to discuss a FY 2011 budget, for which the state already faces an estimated deficit of $3.4 billion.

HOUSING NEEDS SURVEY
Arizona residents are being encouraged to voice their housing needs and overall community development issues by taking a short online survey.
Responses to the survey questions will help ADOH to determine residents’ needs pertaining to public facilities, housing and infrastructure, among others. The survey will be available through November 6, 2009. Resident input will help ADOH assess housing and community development needs throughout the state over the next five years. Part of the assessment entails allocating funds from several sources including Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) and Housing Opportunities for People with AIDS (HOPWA).
This assessment is part of the State of Arizona’s 2010–2014 Consolidated Plan, which is a document submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development outlining housing and community development needs and is accompanied by a plan to address those needs. ADOH expects to have a draft of the Consolidated Plan available for public review early next year.
A Spanish version of the survey is also available. Hard copies are available at the ADOH office located at 1110 W. Washington Street, Suite 310, in Phoenix.
