Notice of Public Hearing and Public Comment Period on the Draft 2018 Regional Allocation Formula Methodology

The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs ("the Department") will hold a public hearing to accept public comment on the Draft 2018 Regional Allocation Formula ("RAF") Methodology.

The public hearing will take place as follows:

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

2:00 p.m. Austin local time

Stephen F. Austin Building

1700 North Congress Avenue, Room 170

Austin, Texas 78701

The RAF may be accessed from TDHCA's Public Comment Center at: https://www.tdhca.state.tx.us/public-comment.htm.

The RAF utilizes appropriate statistical data to measure the affordable housing need and available resources in the 13 State Service Regions that are used for planning purposes. The RAF also allocates funding to rural and urban subregions within each region. The Department has flexibility in determining variables to be used in the RAF, per §2306.1115(a)(3) of the Texas Governing Code, "the department shall develop a formula that…includes other factors determined by the department to be relevant to the equitable distribution of housing funds." The RAF is revised annually to reflect current data, respond to public comment, and better assess regional housing needs and available resources.

The Single Family HOME Investment Partnerships Program ("HOME"), Multifamily HOME, Housing Tax Credit ("HTC") and Housing Trust Fund ("HTF") program RAFs each use slightly different formulas because the programs have different eligible activities, households, and geographical service areas. For example, §2306.111(c) of the Texas Government Code requires that 95% of HOME funding be set aside for non-participating jurisdictions ("non-PJs"). Therefore, the Single Family and Multifamily HOME RAFs only use need and available resource data for non-PJs.

The RAF methodology explains the use of factors, in keeping with the statutory requirements, which include the need for housing assistance, the availability of housing resources, and other factors relevant to the equitable distribution of housing funds in urban and rural areas of the state.

The public comment period for the Draft 2018 RAF methodology will be open from Friday, May 26, 2017, through Friday June 16, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. Austin local time. Anyone may submit comments on the Draft 2018 RAF Methodology in written form or oral testimony at the June 13, 2017, public hearing. Written comments concerning the Draft 2018 RAF Methodology may be submitted by mail to the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, Housing Resource Center, P.O. Box 13941, Austin, Texas 78711-3941, by email to info@tdhca.state.tx.us, or by fax to (512) 475-0070. Comments must be received no later than Friday June 16, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. Austin local time.

Individuals who require auxiliary aids or services at the public hearing should contact Ms. Gina Esteves, ADA responsible employee, at (512) 475-3943 or Relay Texas at (800) 735-2989 at least three (3) days before the meeting so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Non-English speaking individuals who require interpreters at the public hearing should contact Elena Peinado by phone at (512) 475-3814 or by email at elena.peinado@tdhca.state.tx.us at least three (3) days before the meeting so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Personas que hablan español y requieren un intérprete, favor de llamar a Elena Peinado al siguiente número (512) 475-3814 o enviarle un correo electrónico a elena.peinado@tdhca.state.tx.us por lo menos tres días antes de la junta para hacer los preparativos apropiados.

In the event the Texas Lottery Retailer cannot verify the claim, the Texas Lottery Retailer shall provide the claimant with a claim form and instruct the claimant on how to file a claim with the Texas Lottery.

When paying a prize of $600 or more, the Texas Lottery shall file the appropriate income reporting form with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and shall withhold federal income tax at a rate set by the IRS if required. In the event that the claim is not validated by the Texas Lottery, the claim shall be denied and the claimant shall be notified promptly.

C. As an alternative method of claiming a "$100,000 JACKPOT" Scratch Ticket Game prize, the claimant must sign the winning Scratch Ticket, thoroughly complete a claim form, and mail both to: Texas Lottery Commission, P.O.

In the event that the claim is not validated by the Texas Lottery, the claim shall be denied and the claimant shall be notified promptly.

D. Prior to payment by the Texas Lottery of any prize, the Texas Lottery shall deduct:

a. delinquent in the payment of a tax or other money to a state agency and that delinquency is reported to the Comptroller under Government Code §403.055;

C. if there is any question regarding the validity of the Scratch Ticket presented for payment; or

D. if the claim is subject to any deduction from the payment otherwise due, as described in Section 2.3.D of these Game Procedures. No liability for interest for any delay shall accrue to the benefit of the claimant pending payment of the claim.

2.5 Payment of Prizes to Persons Under 18. If a person under the age of 18 years is entitled to a cash prize under $600 from the "$100,000 JACKPOT" Scratch Ticket Game, the Texas Lottery shall deliver to an adult member of the minor's family or the minor's guardian a check or warrant in the amount of the prize payable to the order of the minor.

2.6 If a person under the age of 18 years is entitled to a cash prize of $600 or more from the "$100,000 JACKPOT" Scratch Ticket Game, the Texas Lottery shall deposit the amount of the prize in a custodial bank account, with an adult member of the minor's family or the minor's guardian serving as custodian for the minor.

2.7 Scratch Ticket Claim Period.

4.0 Number and Value of Scratch Ticket Prizes. There will be approximately 7,080,000 Scratch Tickets in Scratch Ticket Game No. 1837. The approximate number and value of prizes in the game are as follows:

If the player has scratched at least 3 complete WORDS, the player wins the prize found in the PRIZE LEGEND. Only one prize will be paid per Ticket. Only letters within the BACK TO SCHOOL CROSSWORD puzzle that are matched with the CALL LETTERS and BONUS letters can be used to form a complete WORD. In the BACK TO SCHOOL CROSSWORD puzzle, every lettered square within an unbroken horizontal (left to right) or vertical (top to bottom) sequence must be matched with the CALL LETTERS or BONUS letters to be considered a complete WORD. Words revealed in a diagonal sequence are not considered valid WORDS. Words within WORDS are not eligible for a prize. A complete WORD must contain at least three letters.

The STIP reflects the federally funded transportation projects in the FY 2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Programs (TIPs) for each Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) in the state. The STIP includes both state and federally funded projects for the nonattainment areas of Dallas-Fort Worth, El Paso, and Houston. The STIP also contains information on federally funded projects in rural areas that are not included in any MPO area, and other statewide programs as listed.

Title 23, United States Code, §134 and §135 require each designated MPO and the state, respectively, to develop a TIP and STIP as a condition to securing federal funds for transportation projects under Title 23 or the Federal Transit Act (49 USC §5301, et seq.). Section 134 requires an MPO to develop its TIP in cooperation with the state and affected public transit operators and to provide an opportunity for interested parties to participate in the development of the program. Section 135 requires the state to develop a STIP for all areas of the state in cooperation with the designated MPOs and, with respect to non-metropolitan areas, in consultation with affected local officials, and further requires an opportunity for participation by interested parties as well as approval by the Governor or the Governor's designee.

A copy of the proposed May 2017 Quarterly Revisions to the FY 2017-2020 STIP will be available for review, at the time the notice of hearing is published, at each of the department's district offices, at the department's Transportation Planning and Programming Division offices located in Building 118, Second Floor, 118 East Riverside Drive, Austin, Texas, or (512) 486-5033, and on the department's website at: http://www.txdot.gov/government/programs/stips.html.

Groups, organizations, or associations should be represented by only one speaker. Speakers are requested to refrain from repeating previously presented testimony.
