May DevCo Release Update



The Ohio Housing Finance Agency (OHFA) released several changes and updates to DevCo Online on May 5, 2016. This new release improved readability within the OHFA database, Utility Allowances (UAs) and more. The March and April releases focused on changes to OHFA's database for DevCo to improve annual owner reporting review and other features. The spring releases did not impact the online reporting side of DevCo. Below is a summary of the changes to online reporting for May's Release.

  • Utility Allowances now include Date Verified  - Date Verified field was added to the Utility Allowance Entry page. This will permit  the same utility allowance to be used for as many consecutive years necessary. A verification date must be provided for each new reporting year on all utility allowances at the property. The Effective Date should list the actual effective date of the utility allowance. Keep in mind that the UA description should include the year as well as utility allowance type.
  • Corrected issue with Events Details opening - An error message was occurring on some properties due to how funding was listed on the unit page. The issue has been corrected in the May release. If you experience an issue like this please contact the DevCo Helpdesk.

For additional information on DevCo, review the online resources, including  How- To Videos and the DevCo Compliance User Guide. If you are experiencing  issues using DevCo please contact the DevCo Helpdesk.
