24 Va. Admin. Code § 30-41-670 - Last resort housing plan

If the analysis of the characteristics and needs of a displaced family indicates that the provision of last resort housing may be necessary, the district office will develop a plan to determine the method of producing comparable replacement housing. In the development of the plan, innovative approaches and methods for the provision and financing of replacement housing will be considered. The plan shall include:

1. Consideration of requirements of local zoning and building codes with reference to methods proposed to provide comparable housing;
2. Discussion of how, when and where housing will be provided;
3. Consideration of environmental suitability of the location of the proposed housing, including consideration of environmental justice;
4. How housing will be financed and the amount of funds to be used for such housing from all funding agencies and private sources;
5. Prices for the housing to be rented or sold is within the financial means of the families and individuals to be displaced;
6. Arrangements for maintaining rent levels appropriate for the persons to be relocated;
7. Arrangements for rental housing management;
8. Disposition of the proceeds from rental, sale, or resale of such housing;
9. How the construction will be monitored; and
10. Any other comments pertinent to providing replacement housing.

The central office relocation section may perform the approval of Last Resort Housing Plans when the computation exceeds an amount determined by the director of the right of way and utilities division.

Last resort housing cases are often identified during the process of providing relocation services and benefits. They may arise from unique circumstances that affect a displaced household. The relocation plan in these cases will consist of a summary of the specific relocation problems, a discussion of methods considered and a detailed statement of the method, estimated cost and time required to implement the recommended solution. The method will be implemented on approval of the district manager or an assistant district manager.
