Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, MSHDA decided to postpone the Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP) revision process that began late last year and was scheduled to conclude earlier this year. In an effort to get back on track with the QAP and continue having funding rounds for 9% LIHTC, MSHDA is considering an “interim” step for allocating the 2021 LIHTC ceiling that would allow for a handful of very focused changes to the QAP and would establish the 9% LIHTC Funding Round schedule for 2021 LIHTC. In order to move forward with this process, MSHDA is required to conduct hearings that allow for public comment.
The Information Hearing is the first step in that process and takes place prior to releasing a Draft QAP. This hearing will be conducted virtually and will not be in-person. Please review the Information Hearing notice at the link below. Additionally, a brief webinar to relay additional detail about the intended timeline and direction is being scheduled and is anticipated to take place the week of 9/14-9/18 that will be open and free of charge. More details on that webinar will be coming soon. Please see the details below about the upcoming Information Hearing.
On Friday September 25, 2020 from 9:00am-11:00am, MSHDA will hold an Information Hearing designed to take comments and recommendations for modification of the Qualified Allocation Plan.
The Information Hearing notice can be found on the Virtual QAP Information Hearing September 25, 2020 page.
