VHDA engages in ongoing strategic planning to guide the Authority's program activities and ensure the fulfillment of our public mission. VHDA also prepares plans pursuant to federal regulations that guide our allocation and administration of federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTCs) and Housing Choice Vouchers (HCVs).
Analysis of Housing Issues and Needs
VHDA conducts ongoing analysis of housing issues and needs in support our ongoing strategic and program planning, and our collaborative involvement with state housing planning and policymaking activities.
Administration Housing Policy Framework
VHDA, along with the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) is assisting in the development and implementation of Virginia’s first Executive Branch Housing Policy Framework. VHDA has assumed lead responsibility in providing staff support for the Virginia Foreclosure Task Force, which is a key component of the housing policy initiative.
Inter-Governmental Housing Policy Collaboration
VHDA works in close partnership with the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) and other state agencies to develop and carryout plans, policies and initiatives that involve interagency collaboration. DHCD prepares Virginia's Consolidated Plan, which governs the use of U.S. Dept. of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) subsidies administered by DHCD. VHDA and DHCD partner with state health and human service agencies to develop and carry out plans for providing community housing and supportive services for people with disabilities, seniors, and people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. VHDA also works closely with the Virginia Housing Commission and Disability Commission to support the development of their legislative housing initiatives.
