BILL NUMBER:S2507

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the private housing finance law, in relation to preferences
under the affordable home ownership development program for service
related disabled veterans

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To give preference to a disabled veteran with a VA disability rating
of 40% or higher the opportunity to get into an affordable home
ownership program.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
This legislation will make the Affordable Home Ownership Development
Program available to home buyers who are service related disabled
veterans. This legislation directs the Affordable Housing
Corporation, when determining awards under the Affordable Home
Ownership Development Program, to provide a preference to
applications based upon the extent to which the proposed project or
program will serve households in which the home buyer is a disabled
veteran, defined as those with a federal VA disability rating of 40%
or higher.

JUSTIFICATION:
Disabled veterans have given their health for our freedoms so it is
only fitting that when they come back home they have an affordable
place to live. This legislation would help disabled veterans sustain
a good quality of life after sacrificing their health well being on
the battlefield.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect on the thirtieth day after it shall have
become a law.
