Missouri Hosts Webinar on Income Averaging Proposal, Comments Due Aug. 22

Missouri has posted a draft policy addressing the new income averaging minimum set-aside.

  • Submission of statements from every non-MHDC funding source acknowledging the intent to operate the development under the AI minimum set-aside.
  • Submit a statement from the proposed management company, acknowledging the intent to operate the development under the income averaging set-aside
  • Acknowledge that if a development: 1) contains market units (above 80% AMI); and 2) intends to operate the development under the AI set-aside, the development must submit a legal opinion letter before firm commitment that the proposed unit mix is in compliance with the Code
