Why is SHA participating in the RAD (Rental Assistance Demonstration) Program?

SHA has a backlog of needed repairs. SHA has $37.5 million in needs (Cammie Clagett alone has $12 million) and HUD has $25.6 Billion. Currently SHA cannot borrow against these properties. Once converted to private ownership, owner could borrow against property to make needed repairs.

 Breakdown of Funding Needs.

To pay off CFFP Debt.

In 2006 SHA Participated in HUD’s Capital Fund Financing Program (CFFP) and borrowed $5,763,000 to construct JC Anderson Apartments. This has had several negative impacts as follows:

  1. Each year SHA now receives approximately $1.2 million for Capital Improvements. Off the top comes $440,940 towards repayment leaving SHA with only $759,060. This debt will not be repaid until 2024. We are not receiving sufficient Capital Funds to adequately maintain our Public Housing properties.
  2. SHA cannot demolish or dispose of any Public Housing Units until the CFFP Debt is repaid. This prevents us from demolishing Cammie Clagett until all or a portion of the debt is repaid.  There are specific limitations on how the debt must be repaid.

The current balance on our CFFP Loan is $3,810,249.43 our 7 Property Deal will allow us to retire $2.5 million leaving a balance of $1,310,249.43. This remaining balance of should be wiped out with the 72 unit deal at Cammie Clagett.

Operating Costs

Measured at a PUPA Level
PUPA = Per Unit Per Annum
Our Typical Public Housing - PUPA = $5,200
Our Typical Post RAD Section 8 Project Based Unit - PUPA = $4,200

Differences
Less Maintenance Personnel Per Unit (Every unit is new or like new)
No Family Self-Sufficiency Requirements
No Community Service Requirements

If you are a Housing Authority consider keeping the property in the name of the HA and put it into the deal through a long-term ground lease.

  • Possibly remain tax exempt, financial savings.
  • May still qualify for participation in the South Carolina State Insurance Reserve Fund, financial savings.

Other Important Things

  • PBV vs PBRA
  • Developer’s Fees
  • Choice Neighborhoods
  • Mod Rehab
  • Portfolio Applications
  • Consider converting current PH in current Tax Credit Deals to increase revenue
  • Applications (number of units, 60,000)
  • Utilities can change (recommended)
  • Existing PH residents over income
