A05438 Memo:

BILL NUMBER:A5438

TITLE OF BILL:  An act to amend the private housing finance law, in
relation to determining eligibility for admission to certain
limited-profit housing company accommodations

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

The purpose of this bill is to expand eligibility criteria for
families that would be eligible for Mitchell-Lama housing.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

This bill would amend paragraph (e) of subdivision 2 of section 31 of
the private housing finance law. It would remove the requirement that
families, making one hundred twenty-five percent of the average median
income for the area or less; must have two or more dependents to be
eligible to live in a Mitchell-Lama development.

JUSTIFICATION:

This bill would make all families that make one hundred twenty-five
percent of the average median income for the area or less eligible to
live in a Mitchell-Lama development. The cost of housing has steadily
risen while average income levels have remained relatively stagnant.
By expanding eligibility criteria to families making one hundred
twenty-five percent of the average median income for the area or less,
the program will be better suited to provide housing to moderate- and
low-income families.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

2012: A.6262 (Silver) - Passed Assembly

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.

         THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-

    1    Section 1. Paragraph (e) of subdivision 2 of section 31 of the private
    2  housing  finance  law,  as  added by chapter 729 of the laws of 1974, is
    3  amended to read as follows:
    4    (e) Notwithstanding the provisions of this subdivision, families [with
    5  two or more dependents] whose probable aggregate annual income does  not
    6  exceed  one  hundred twenty-five percent of the limitations as to income
    7  as determined pursuant to paragraphs (a) and (b)  of  this  subdivision,
    8  shall also be eligible for admission to the dwelling or non-housekeeping
    9  accommodations  without board of a project on the understanding that any
   10  family becoming eligible for admission by reason hereof shall pay,  from
   11  the time of admission, a rental surcharge as provided for in subdivision
   12  three  of  this section, computed on the basis of the income limitations
   13  applicable to such family in the absence of this subdivision. In  apply-
   14  ing  the  provisions  of  subdivision  three OF THIS SECTION to a family
   15  becoming  eligible  by  reason  of  this  section,  the  maximum  income
   16  prescribed  by  law for admission or occupancy shall for all purposes be
   17  computed without reference to this paragraph.
   18    S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
