                              Example of a Return of HDAP Subsidy
                                for Homeownership Developments

At Application:

   At application the project must be designed with a proposed total housing payment that is
   affordable to the targeted income group, assuming one and 1 person per bedroom.

   3 bedrooms = household size of 3

   50% income for a household of 3 = $22,425

   Anticipated Mortgage Principal and Interest Payment:             $215
               (anticipated buyer’s first = $29,000 at 8%, 30 yrs.)
   Estimated Insurance and Taxes:                                   $175
   Utility Allowance (gas, water/sewer, electric, trash):           $150
   Other assessments/fees:                                          $ 0
   Total Anticipated Monthly Housing Payment:                       $540

   Affordability test: Monthly payment $540 divided by 30% x 12 months
   Proposed payment requires an annual income of $21,600
   Affordability = $21,600 divided by 50% AMI for household of 4.5 ($22,425) x 2
   Affordability Percentage at Application:      48.2% AMI

   Development Cost: $80,000
   Fair Market Value: $75,000
   The buyer’s anticipated first mortgage = $29,000
   The buyer’s contribution to the downpayment = $2,000

   Assuming no other funding sources, the total HDAP request is $49,000 (cost to build minus the
   buyer’s mortgage and buyer’s portion of the downpayment)
   Development subsidy (cost to build minus Fair Market Value): $5,000
   Affordability subsidy (Fair Market Value minus buyer’s first mortgage minus buyer’s contribution
   to the downpayment): $44,000

At Sale of the Unit:
   The actual buyer is a family of four (4) with an annual household income of $27,000.       The
   family’s income is 62.5% of the area median income ($27,000 divided by [2 x $21,600 - the 50%
   AMI for a household of four (4)].

   Affordability of the actual buyer =
      Minimum payment (25% of income toward housing) = $563
               (annual income of $27,000 divided by 12 months times 25%)
      Maximum payment (35% of income toward housing) = $787
              (annual income of $27,000 divided by 12 months times 35%)

   Assuming that the first mortgage rate and terms remain as projected in the application, the
   applicant will be required to return unneeded affordability subsidy for this unit. The actual buyer
   must pay a minimum of $563 in a monthly housing payment (as calculated above). However, if
   the subsidy request of $49,000 in HDAP for this unit was fully used, the total housing payment
   would be $540, below the required minimum housing payment of 25% of a buyer’s income. The
   homebuyer would need to obtain a first mortgage loan larger than the one projected in the HDAP
   application to meet the 25% test. To reach that percentage, the buyer needs a housing payment that
   is $23 per month higher ($563 minimum payment - $540 housing payment projected in the HDAP

A mortgage payment of at least $238 per month (projected in the application at $215 per month) is
required to meet the minimum payment required. This payment at 8%, 30 years leverages a first
mortgage of $32,150. The anticipated first mortgage in the application was $29,000. The applicant
would be required to return a minimum of $3,150 in HDAP subsidy to OHFA for this unit.

                  AMORTIZING 1%, 30-Year HOMEBUYER LOANS


Construction of the House costs a total of $100,000,
Fair Market Value of the house = $100,000

Household of four (4) $30,000 / 12 months = gross monthly income of $2,500
lowest housing payment =     $625 (25% of the monthly income)
highest payment =            $825 (35% of the monthly income)
*$30,000 for a household of four in this example is 66% of the Area Median Income

Housing Costs (other than Principal/Interest Payments on Hard Debt
Utilities:                                   $175 per month
(water/sewer, trash, electric, gas)
Taxes/Insurance/Escrows:                     $150 per month
Other (i.e. Assessments):                    $0
Total:                                       $325

Principal and Interest Payment Range
    Minimum PI payment:             $625 - $325 = $300
    Maximum PI payment:             $825 - $325 = $500

Buyer’s Downpayment = 3% = $3,000
Total Mortgageable Debt = $97,000 ($100,000 house cost – downpayment)

Buyer’s Conventional Mortgage: minimum conventional mortgage equals the greater of:
      10% of the mortgageable debt = $10,000
      $10,000
      Total Mortgageable Debt $97,000 – OHFA Maximum Mortgage $78,000 = $19,000

Maximum OHFA Mortgage = $78,000
     Rate:      1%
     Term:      30 years
     Payment:   $251.86

Conventional Mortgage Terms: $19,000 (minimum from #6 above)
      Rate:          8%
      Term:         30 years
      Payment:      $140.64

With the maximum OHFA mortgage and minimum conventional mortgage, the buyer’s principal and
interest payment is a total of $392.51 which is within the appropriate range as determined above (#4).
If the buyer’s payment is less than 25% of the buyer’s income, the conventional mortgage amount
must be increased and the OHFA mortgage decreased. If the buyer’s payment is more than 35% of the
buyer’s income, the buyer must evidence additional affordability subsidy from another funding source
in order to be eligible for the home.

                                     ACQUISITION, RELOCATION AND DEMOLITION SECTION

                                                             INS TRUCTIONS (3 PAGES )

Since much of OHFAs funds are from federal sources, any project involving (A) acquisition of real property or easements, (B) rehabilitation, (C)
displacement of occupants, and (D) demolition may activate-the regulations found in the Uniform Relocation and Real Property Acquisition Policies
Act of 1970, as amended (URA). In addition, Section 104(d) of the Housing and Community Development Act (the Barney Frank Amendment) may
apply to your project if CDBG or HOM E funds are used and funded activities include demolition or conversion that reduces the supply of
low/moderate income dwelling units (those renting below Section 8 Fair M arket Value).

To comply with requirements of the URA and Section 104(d), you must begin to document any acquisition and/or relocation activity once you begin
planning to apply for state/federal funds. Be aware early in the process that acquisition of real property, including permanent easements must be done
in compliance with the URA. Also, intentional or unintentional displacement of any tenant (individual, family, non-profit, business, or farm)
without the URA, and possibly 104(d) procedures being followed may result in displacement, adding a financial liability to your project.

Please contact Don Cooper at OHCP, Acquisition/Relocation Specialist at (614) 466-2285 if you have any questions about completing this form or
for consultation on your project's URA activities.

The following is a brief explanation of each attachment in the Acquisition and Relocation Section of this application:


This questionnaire is designed to assist us in reviewing your project for acquisition, relocation, and demolition activities and in making a
determination if you have adequately planned and budgeted for these activities.

          Section 1 : Scope of Acti vities

          Check the acquisition, rehabilitation, relocation, and demolition activities contained within the entire scope of the project (including
          activities funded from other funding sources that are part of this project). Check the appropriate boxes.

        Section 2: Acquisition Acti vities

         Any real property, including permanent easements, acquired or to be acquired, must be acquired in compliance with the
         URA , whether the property is acquired on a voluntary, involuntary, or donated basis.

         A..     There is no acquisition issue if real property was not acquired for this project in the past,
                 nor is to be acquired in the future. If ALL real property was previously owned, and not
                 acquired for this project, enter date(s) property to be used for this project was acquired
                 and proceed to the Section 3.

        B.       Enter the nu mber of sites acquired or to be acquired of each category.

        C.       Enter the nu mber of sites under control for each category and the date(s) obtained. The total number
                   for C should equal the total number fo r b above.

         D.      Fo r secured sites:

                1.    Check who secured the site.

                2.    Check how the site(s) was secured and attach requested documentation for donations and
                       voluntary acquisitions.
E.       For sites not yet secured:

         1.         Check who will secure the site(s).

         2.         Check how site(s) will be secured.

F.       Programs assisting homebuyers with down payment assistance, closing costs, or principal
         reduction payments are acquisition activities, and are covered by the URA. Timely
         disclosure needs to be made to the seller, in writ ing, to exempt the purchase from fu ll URA
         regulations (see Samp le Vo luntary Acquisition Form-3rd, attached). Also, tenants
         residing in the home may be elig ible for relocation benefits unless they (a) are fully
         informed of their rights under the URA, and (b ) waive those rights in a written consent
         document. You may want to des ign your program to avoid displacing tenants and avoid
         the costs associated with tenant displacement. If your program does call for tenant
         displacement, enter the number of d isplacements and the amount budgeted to cover the
         costs of displacement.

Section 3: Relocation Acti vi ties

This section covers the two basic relocation options for tenant occupied units. They are:

TENANTS WHO ARE INVOLUNTARILY DISPLA CED because they are required to move off site permanently as a direct
result of the project, including a permanent move that was done prior to the date of the application in anticipation of the

TENANTS WHO REMAIN ON SITE since a significant relocation obligation remains with nondisplaced tenants.
Relocation files must be established and each tenant offered a suitable affordable, decent, safe and sanitary unit (DS&S) on
site. Tenants may be required (a) to move fro m one unit to another or (b) to move off site temporarily to permit construction
if they are p rovided an appropriate unit during the move and paid all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses. The failure to
provide proper notices or benefits can result in tenants becoming displaced persons, elig ible for permanent relocation
benefits, even if it was not intended for them to be displaced.

A.        Briefly describe each proposed activity involving rehabilitat ion, demo lition or conversion
           to another use (conversion also includes increasing rents to the point that tenants are
           economically d isplaced).

 B.       Enter date vacant property was last occupied.

C.        Check whether tenants were previously displaced to make the property availab le fo r this
          project. If so, past tenants must be located and offered relocation assistance.

D.        Check whether property is currently occupied by tenants.

 E.       If Yes is checked in D above, co mplete the three questions.

           1. Check if tenants are required to move permanently fro m the site.' If YES, enter the
              number of residential and nonresidential tenant units (Displacement).

              2. Check whether remaining tenants will be required to move temporarily or to move
                  permanently fro m one unit to another within the pro ject. If YES, enter the number
                  of residential and nonresidential tenant units (Nondisplacement).

              3. If answer to 1 or 2 above is YES, show amount budgeted and describe how
                 relocation benefits will be provided (include notices, advisory services and
                 financial reimbursements) and identify staff that will implement the relocation
                 activity. if needed, use back of page or attach additional sheets.
Section 4: Demolition Activities

CDBG and HOM E funds are covered by Section 104(d) of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, (Barney F rank
Amendment) which (1) protects the supply of affordable housing units and (2) outlines benefits to low - and moderate-income residents who are
permanently displaced. Section 104(d) has two distinct components:

UNITS: 104(d) requires one-for-one replacement of low- and moderate-income dwelling units that are demolished or converted to another use.

PEOPLE: 104(d) specifies relocation assistance for displaced low-income families. (It does not provide protection or assistance for families with
incomes above the Section 8 Lower Income Limit. However, those families are covered under URA relocation requirements).

A.        Check whether your project will reduce the supply of low and moderate dwelling units
          (defined as a dwelling unit with a market rent, including average utility costs, that does
          not exceed the Fair M arket Rent for Section 8 existing housing). The term does not
          include any unit that is owned and occupied by the same person before and after the
          assisted rehabilitation. A housing project that has a before rehab value of less that $5,000
          per unit and has been documented to be dilapidated will be considered not suitable for
          rehabilitation; thus, the one-for-one replacement rule will not apply. If YES is checked,
          describe a plan for replacing the demolished or converted units.

B.        Check whether your project will permanently displace low/moderate income persons. If
          YES is checked, explain the method of providing relocation benefits.

period, and the period of affordability. The affirmative program also should ensure that any group(s) of persons normally
NOT likely to apply for the housing without special outreach efforts (because of existing neighborhood racial or ethnic
patterns, location of housing in the SMA, price or other factors), knows about the housing, feels welcome to apply and has
the opportunity to buy or rent.

Part 1 - Applicant and Project identification.
The applicant may obtain Census Tract location information, Item 1 i, from local planning agencies, public libraries, and
other sources of Census Data. For item 1 g, specify approximate starting date of marketing activities (should be at least 90
days prior to initiation of first sales or rental) to the groups targeted for special outreach and the anticipated date of in itial
occupancy. Item 1 j, is to be completed only if the applicant is not to implement the plan on its own.

Part 2 - Type of Affirmative Marketing Plan
Applicants for multifamily and subdivision projects are to submit a Project Plan which describes the marketing program
for the particular project or subdivision. Scattered-site developers are to submit individual Annual Plans based on the
racial composition of each type of census tract. For example, if a developer constructs/rehabilitates units in both minority
and non-minority census tracts, separate plans shall be submitted for all of the housing proposed for both types.

Part 3 - Direction of Marketing Activity
Considering factors such as price or rental of housing, the racial/ethnic characteristics of the neighborhood in which
housing is (or is to be) located, and the population within the housing market area, public transportation routes, etc.,
indicate which group(s) you believe are least likely to apply without special outreach. (See paragraph 4 above.)

Part 4 - Marketing Program
The applicant shall describe the marketing program to be used to attract all segments of the eligible population, especially
those groups designated in the Plan as least likely to apply. The applicant shall state: the type of media to be used, the
names of newspapers/call letters of radio or TV stations; the identity of the circulation or audience of the media identified
in the Plan, e. g., White (Non-Hispanic), Black (Non-Hispanic), Asian- American/Pacific Islander, American
Indian/Alaskan Native, disabled, families with children, etc; and the size or duration of the newspaper advertising or
length and frequency of broadcasting advertising.

Community contacts (list at least 3) include individuals or organizations that are well known in the project area or the
locality and that can influence persons within groups considered least likely to apply. Such contacts may include, but not
be limited to: neighborhood, minority, disability, and women's organizations, churches, labor unions, employers, local
welfare office, public and private agencies, and individuals who are connected with these organizations and/or are
well-known in the community.

                 Attach a copy of the policy for referrals of housing questions and complaints to the local Fair Housing
                 agency. (Every county and a majority of cities have a local fair housing agency. A fairly

                 OHCP's Civil Rights Specialist, Joyce Hill, at (614) 466-2285.) Copies of any written materials
                 should be submitted with the Plan, if such materials are available at the time of application.
                 Otherwise the information shall be submitted to OHCP's Civil Rights Specialist when it is developed.

        C.       List the Local Fair Housing Agency, contact, address, and phone number.

Part 7 - Policy and Procedures and Additional Considerations
Adopt policy and procedures that inform the public, potential tenants, and property owners of the Affirmative Marketing
Policy/Strategy. In this section describe other efforts not mentioned previously which are planned to attract persons in
those groups already identified in the Plan as least likely to apply for the housing or in groups not previously identified in
the Plan. Such efforts may include outreach activities to female-headed households, etc.

Part 8 - Applicant's Authorization
The applicant's authorized person signs and dates the AFHM Plan. By signing the Plan, the applicant assumes full
responsibility for its implementation. State of Ohio employees, auditor, or agents and the U. S. Department of Housing
and Urban Development (HUD) may at any time monitor the implementation of the Plan and request modification in its;
format or content where the State or HUD deems necessary. The applicant is required to evaluate the effectiveness of the
plan and make needed modifications annually. A copy of the modifications must be submitted to OHCP's Civil Rights
Specialist, Joyce Hill.

Notice of Intent to Begin Marketing. No later than 90 days prior to the initiation of sales or rental marketing activities,
the applicant with an approved Affirmative Fair Housing Marketing Plan shall submit notice of intent to begin
marketing. It is to be submitted in writing to OHCP's Civil Rights Specialist:
