CHARTING THE FUTURE
HUD unveils proposed housing finance reforms
In March of this year President Trump directed HUD & the Department of the Treasury to provide plans to reform the nation’s housing finance programs. In August, HUD published its recommendations based on four principles - to refocus FHA - the Federal Housing Administration - to its core mission; to protects American taxpayers; to provide FHA & Ginnie Mae the tools to appropriately manage risk; & to provide liquidity to the housing finance system. "As a direct result of the Trump Administration's pro-growth policies, unemployment is at 50-year low and American families are earning higher incomes and enjoying more opportunities than seemed possible just a few years ago," said Secretary Carson. "There is still one piece of unfinished business from the financial crisis: housing finance reform. These changes to our housing finance system will help more American families achieve their dream of owning a home." Treasury also has published its recommendations.
HUD Secretary Carson has announced that HUD intends to expand its RAD (Rental Assistance Demonstration) initiative to permit some 2,800 Section 202 supportive housing for the very low-income elderly properties owned by not-for-profit housing providers across the county, including nearly 130 in Alaska, Idaho Oregon & Washington, to solicit and use private capital to maintain and upgrade their properties. "By expanding RAD's reach into this vital part of our affordable housing stock,” he explained, “we can prioritize and mobilize capital investment to tackle the projected backlog of repairs in these properties and preserve more affordable housing for those who need it .” In less than a decade, HUD has converted nearly 150,000 units of public housing units to RAD thereby giving them access to private capital to help address an estimated $36 billion capital needs backlog.
KNOCK, KNOCK (again)
A “win-win” for distressed communities
Opportunity’s knocking again. HUD Secretary Carson has announced that the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) will offer several incentives to encourage greater development of hospitals and health care facilities located in Opportunity Zones. Effective immediately, HUD’s Section 242 Mortgage Insurance for Hospitals program will begin “giving priority” to applications it receives for facilities located in qualified Opportunity Zones with expedited underwriting & reduced application exam fees. “This can be a win-win for residents living in these neighborhoods—more health care facilities & hospitals closer to home & greater employment opportunities for those in the health care industry,” the Secretary said.

STEPPING IT UP
Bricks & mortar for the young & at-risk
In July HUD Secretary Carson invited public housing authorities without existing Family Unification Programs to apply for up to 25 tenant protection vouchers each to provide permanent, affordable housing to young people, usually at the age of 18, who are aging-out of foster care, one in four of whom otherwise likely will be homeless by the end of their first year out of the system. HUD’s already received and reviewing applications from another of interested authorities. Meanwhile, at Caples Terrace in downtown Vancouver, Washington that city’s authority is going even further to address aging out, marking the “first time” first time it’s built housing that “targets a specific population.” How, explains Authority director Roy Johnson, “are they going to make it when they don’t have a safety net,” they had in foster care. “That’s what we wanted to look at providing.” Read how.

“In 1980, most adults from age 23 onwards lived independently, without family or roommates. By 2017, this tipping point age had increased to 26. Rising rates of college attendance don’t explain this delay: People with a high school education level are less likely to live independently at every age - and by a margin of about 12 percentage points by age 30. People in more expensive places take longer to live independently, and this gap has widened over time” - Cecile Murray of Zillow Research, September 23rd, 2019.
