262-03-020. Purpose

(1) It is in the public interest that the commission provide affordable housing, as well as nonprofit cultural and social service facilities, administer orderly programs, and maximize use of the bond financing and low income housing tax credit (LIHTC) programs. To protect this public interest, it is the policy of the commission to conduct business only with responsible persons.

(2) These regulations provide debarment and temporary disqualification procedures to implement this policy. To ensure that program participants receive notice and an opportunity to be heard in any debarment or temporary disqualification action against such participants, these regulations adopt RCW 34.05.482 through 34.05.494 relating to brief adjudicative proceedings. Where these regulations are inconsistent with these procedures for brief adjudicative proceedings, the provisions of RCW 34.05.482 through 34.05.494 govern.

(3) These procedures may be extended to any new program administered by the commission.
