Virginia Administrative Code
Title 13. Housing
Agency 10. Virginia Housing Development Authority
Chapter 130. Rules and Regulations for Multi-Family Housing Developments for Mentally Disabled Persons

13VAC10-130-30. Income limits and general restrictions.

The amounts payable, if any, by persons occupying M/D developments are deemed not to be rent. As a result, the authority's income limit set forth under its rules and regulations limiting a person's or family's adjusted family income to an amount not greater than seven times the total annual rent is inapplicable. In accordance with the authority's rules and regulations, the income limits for persons occupying such developments shall be as follows: All units of each M/D development, with the sole exception of those units occupied by an employee or agent of the mortgagor, shall be occupied or held available for occupancy by persons who are mentally disabled and who have adjusted family incomes (as defined in the authority's rules and regulations and as determined at the time of their initial occupancy of such units and at the time of reexamination and redetermination of such persons' adjusted family incomes and eligibility subsequent to their initial occupancy of such units) which do not exceed 150% of the applicable area median gross income as determined by the authority. The foregoing income limit shall apply to all developments for which the board approves mortgage loans on or after May 1, 1998, and for which the board has approved mortgage loans prior to May 1, 1998, notwithstanding the inclusion of other income limits in the resolutions authorizing such mortgage loans or in any agreements executed prior to May 1, 1998, by and between the authority and the mortgagors of such developments.

The board may establish, in the resolution authorizing any mortgage loan to finance an M/D development under these rules and regulations, income limits lower than those provided herein for the occupants of the units in such M/D development.

If federal law or rules and regulations impose limitations on the incomes of the persons or families who may occupy all or any of the units in an M/D development, the occupancy of the M/D development shall comply with such limitations, and the adjusted family incomes (as defined in the authority's rules and regulations) of applicants for occupancy of all of the units in the M/D development shall be computed, for the purpose of determining eligibility for occupancy thereof under these rules and regulations in the manner specified in such federal law and rules and regulations, subject to such modifications as the executive director shall require or approve in order to facilitate processing, review and approval of such applications.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, all M/D developments and the processing thereof under the terms hereof must comply with (i) the Act and the authority's rules and regulations, (ii) the applicable federal laws and regulations governing the federal tax exemption of the notes or bonds issued by the authority to finance such M/D developments, and (iii) the requirements set forth in the resolutions pursuant to which the notes or bonds, if any, are issued by the authority to finance the M/D developments. Copies of the authority's applicable note and bond resolutions, if any, are available upon request.
