Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs)
Inner-city is a Community Development Organization (CHDO) - certified through Louisiana Housing Finance Agency & City of Alexandria, LA Housing Development Office
CHDO Certification Description
C-H-D-O, Community Housing Development Organization, is pronounced "cho-do." Under HOME, 15 percent of the HOME funds allocated to every PJ (a participating jurisdiction - city, County, multi-jurisdictional consortium, or state) are set aside for projects developed by CHDOs. The 15 percent CHDO set aside is Congress's explicit effort to direct HOME program funds into the hands of nonprofit developers.
What is a CHDO?
As a private nonprofit organization with a 501 (c) federal tax exemption, the CHDO must include providing decent, affordable housing to low-income households as one of its purpose in its charter, articles of incorporation, or by-laws. It must serve a specific, delineated geographic area; either a neighborhood, several neighborhoods, or the entire community, but not the entire state.
