§600.51.  Short title; purpose

A.  This Chapter shall be known and may be cited as the "Louisiana Habitat for Humanity Loan Purchase Program Act".

B.  The legislature hereby finds and declares that there exists in the state a need to assist low-income individuals and families, and particularly those individuals and families who have mental or physical disabilities, in accessing and acquiring affordable housing and to provide for the development and construction of decent, safe, accessible, and affordable housing for low-income individuals and families such as currently is provided by Louisiana affiliates of Habitat for Humanity.  The legislature further finds that the Louisiana Housing Corporation has the requisite powers and duties to support and administer this program. Therefore, to address these needs, the purposes of this Chapter shall be the following:

(1)  To partner with Louisiana Habitat for Humanity affiliates which are constructing affordable housing for Louisiana citizens.

(2) To encourage the development of accessible housing for people with disabilities through media outreach in collaboration with disability based community organizations.

(3)  To purchase homeowner loans from habitat affiliates and thereby provide more resources for such entities to serve more potential home buyers.

(4)  To establish a revolving fund to provide a growing pool of monies to support the partnership between the Louisiana Housing Corporation and the habitat affiliates.
