BILL NUMBER:S755

TITLE OF BILL:

An act
to amend the private housing finance law, in relation to including
mixed residential and commercial property within the provisions of
the affordable home ownership development program

PURPOSE:

To authorize the Affordable Housing Corporation to fund the
construction or rehabilitation of housing that also contains a
commercial retailing business.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

This bill amends the definition of "home" contained in Section 1111
(1) of the Private Housing Finance Law to authorize the Affordable
Housing Corporation to provide funds for the construction or
rehabilitation of one- to four-family dwellings which have at least
one owner occupant and which may contain an area utilized for
commercial retailing business.

JUSTIFICATION:

Currently, the Affordable Home Ownership Development Program provides
eligible applicants funds for the construction or rehabilitation of
one- to four-family owner occupied housing. The program, though,
makes no provision for funding of residential dwellings that contain
ground level retail stores with the store owner living in another
housing unit within the building. By authorizing this type of housing
development, the State would be encouraging home ownership
opportunities with entrepreneurial activities. This type of program
could have an especially vital impact in blighted areas because it
would help revitalize neighborhoods from both a housing and an
economic growth perspective.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2009-2010: S.1096/A.4283 Referred to Housing, Construction
& Community Development
2007-2008: S.359/A.4026 Referred to Housing, Construction

2005: A.704/S.6244 Referred to Housing
2003-2004: A.4509 Referred to Housing

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
