AS 18.55.998. Supplemental Housing Development Grants.

(a) There is created in the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation a supplemental housing development grant fund. Using corporate earnings or other available funds, the corporation shall make grants to regional housing authorities established under AS 18.55.996 for the cost of on-site sewer and water facilities, road construction to project sites, energy efficient design features in homes, and extension of electrical distribution facilities to individual residences.

(b) A grant may be made only for residential housing for which federal loan or grant approval has been obtained from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development and which will be made available to the public on a nondiscriminatory basis. A grant may not be used to retire or repay obligations or debts of the grant recipient. A grant may only be for the difference between the maximum amount available under federal law or regulation for construction of the residential housing for which the grant is made and the actual costs of the construction. A grant may not exceed 20 percent of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development total development cost per unit in effect at the time the grant is made.

(c) Grant money may be used only for the purposes specified in (a) of this section. No part of the grant money may be used for administrative or other costs of a regional housing authority whether the costs are directly associated with the construction or general costs of the authority.

(d) The Alaska Housing Finance Corporation shall adopt regulations to carry out the purposes of this section. The provisions of AS 18.56.088(a) and (b) apply to regulations adopted under this section.

(e) In order to make grants authorized by (a) of this section in its administration of the supplemental housing development grant fund established by this section, the board of directors of the corporation shall identify in the corporation's proposed operating budget the money available to the corporation, including the corporation's own assets, to supplement available federal development money.
