Can local governments create CHDOs?
The HOME program calls for authentic, community-based nonprofits as CHDOs. Public bodies or instruments of public bodies (public housing authorities, redevelopment agencies, housing finance agencies, etc.) do not qualify. Local or state governments can appoint no more than one-third of the membership of a CHDO board, and public officials can constitute no more than one-third of a CHDO board.
