Notice of Intended Action

Proposing rule making related to trust fund allocation plans and providing an opportunity for public comment

The Iowa Finance Authority hereby proposes to amend Chapter 19, "State Housing Trust Fund," Iowa Administrative Code.

Legal Authority for Rule Making

This rule making is proposed under the authority provided in Iowa Code section 16.181(3).

State or Federal Law Implemented

This rule making implements, in whole or in part, Iowa Code section 16.181.

Purpose and Summary

The purpose of the proposed amendment is to update the rules in Chapter 19, which have not been revised for approximately ten years. The amendment would update the trust fund allocation plan for the Local Housing Trust Fund Program from the June 2009 version to the March 2019 version of the plan. This update would allow the final four counties that are not part of an Iowa Council of Governments region, with the Iowa Finance Authority Board's consent, to form a new local housing trust fund together even though the counties do not serve geographically contiguous areas.

Fiscal Impact

This rule making has no fiscal impact to the State of Iowa.

Jobs Impact

After analysis and review of this rule making, no impact on jobs has been found.

Waivers

Any person who believes that the application of the discretionary provisions of this rule making would result in hardship or injustice to that person may petition the Authority for a waiver of the discretionary provisions, if any.

Public Comment

Any interested person may submit written or oral comments concerning this proposed rule making. Written or oral comments in response to this rule making must be received by the Authority no later than 4:30 p.m. on April 16, 2019. Comments should be directed to:

Review by Administrative Rules Review Committee

The Administrative Rules Review Committee, a bipartisan legislative committee which oversees rule making by executive branch agencies, may, on its own motion or on written request by any individual or group, review this rule making at its regular monthly meeting or at a special meeting. The Committee's meetings are open to the public, and interested persons may be heard as provided in Iowa Code section 17A.8(6).

The following rule-making action is proposed:

Amend rule 265—19.1(16) as follows:

265—19.1(16) Trust fund allocation plans.

The trust fund allocation plans for the local housing trust fund program and the project-based housing program include the plans, applications, and application instructions. The trust fund allocation plans for the local housing trust fund program and the project-based housing program are incorporated by reference pursuant to Iowa Code section 17A.6 and 265—subrules 17.4(2) and 17.12(2).
