Since its inception in 2002, this VHDA Advisory Board has become an essential affordable housing stakeholder group that has provided guidance in establishing criteria for mixed-use/mixed-income projects, reviewed and endorsed changes to the Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP), contributed developer perspective regarding a leasehold policy and evaluated and commented on parameters for premature bond retirement. This advisory board is comprised of developers and local government representatives.
The Rental Housing and Advisory Board relies on the expertise of their board members to provide guidance on their programs and services, as well as insight into industry challenges, so that VHDA can continue to make a positive impact on the diverse affordable housing needs across the state.
