Why should a participating jurisdiction work with CHDOs?
If a PJ fails to contract for and commit its CHDO set-aside, the jurisdiction automatically loses the funding, with no appeal. The participating jurisdiction has 18 months to reach a written agreement with a CHDO (or more than one CHDO) to reserve the funds for specific CHDO-sponsored projects and 24 months to commit the funds for specific CHDO project activities. CHDOs producing housing under rental-housing production set-aside funds in communities eligible for new construction have 36 months.
