BILL NUMBER: S6156 SPONSOR: STEWART-COUSINS TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the private housing finance law, in relation to the statewide or regional multi-state contract adminis- tration and support services for federal section eight project based housing assistance payments contracts PURPOSE OF THE BILL: The purpose of this bill is to clarify and reinforce a New York State, long- standing position that the Housing Trust Fund Corporation ("Corpo- ration") and the Division of Housing and Community Renewal ("DHCR") are the public housing agencies authorized to undertake statewide contract administration for Section 8 project based housing assistance adminis- trative contracts pursuant to New York state law and the United States Housing Act of 1937 ("the Act"). This legislation is necessary to preserve state and local control over project based administration. Without a clear articulation of authority for a state agency to adminis- ter these project based contracts, it is possible for private industry to take control of the federally assisted housing stock in New York.
