Jackson Newspapers, Wednesday, August 02, 2017
(RECAP: Hopewell's revitalization recently got a boost with the announcement of a new 68-unit affordable residential development anchored by commercial space. To offset costs, both the Virginia Housing Development Authority and the city have promised tax breaks to the development, to be called Freedman Point. The most significant of those breaks comes from VHDA, which in June approved $10 million in tax credits, spread evenly over 10 years, through its Federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Program.)
Chicago Tribune, Wednesday, August 09, 2017
(RECAP: If you've been waiting for the long-anticipated news that the two dominant players in the home mortgage arena — Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — finally have decided to overhaul their outdated credit scoring systems to expand homeownership opportunities for a broader range of consumers, sorry. Your wait just got a lot longer.)
The Washington Examiner, Monday, August 07, 2017
(RECAP: The Department of Housing and Urban Development is poised to reverse the Obama administration's policy and return to a competitive bidding process to award Section 8 housing, according to a well-placed source in the department. The move would overturn the Obama-era methodology of using a grant-style process that was rebuked by administrators and ultimately the U.S. Supreme Court.)
The Virginian-Pilot, Monday, July 31, 2017
(RECAP: While federal inspectors were looking into weak accounting practices at the city’s Housing Authority last summer, the agency hired a convicted embezzler and gave her a credit card. Months later, it reported $8,000 in fraudulent charges to police. Authority supervisors have since fired that secretary and declined to prosecute the theft.)
National Mortgage Professional Magazine, Wednesday, August 09, 2017
(RECAP: Millennials entering the housing market are mostly bypassing Federal Housing Administration (FHA)-backed mortgages, according to new data from Ellie Mae.)
