Our Housing Preservation division is closing the final chapter on the Hardest Hit Fund after having disbursed more than $775 million to 26,000 Ohio homeowners and greened more than 17,000 neighborhood lots. Housing Policy staff have been assisting Agency-wide efforts from gathering data to support the Homeowner Assistance Fund plan to creating interactive maps for the Qualified Allocation Plan, the guiding document for housing tax credit funding. In the Multifamily Housing Development division, more than $25 million in bond gap funding was awarded in late summer, and the OHFA Board recently approved the 2022-2023 QAP, which went through several rounds of feedback with development partners and stakeholders.
