BILL NUMBER:S4287

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 Rome 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.
