VHDA’s Executive Director "Sounds Off" on Housing Credits

Susan Dewey, our Executive Director, was one of nine housing finance authority executives to talk with Affordable Housing Finance magazine about QAP changes, cost containment and preservation of existing affordable housing. One new 2015 strategy she discusses is VHDA’s focus on energy efficiency in rehab deals that includes increased developer fees for tax-exempt developments that pursue LEED/EarthCraft certification. She also notes that the most common mistake VHDA sees developers making when applying for Housing Credits is not reading the instructions thoroughly.

Here’s where you can read the entire interview, including what she had to say about the biggest change made to our 2015 QAP, strategies being implemented to preserve existing affordable housing and what VHDA is doing to address cost containment.
