Definition of Replacement
Housing Factor Funds

The Replacement Housing Factor (RHF) is a Public
Housing development fund from U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development (HUD) available as
a result of the sale of the Des Moines Municipal
Housing Agency (DMMHA) scattered site housing
units

These funds can only be used to develop or acquire
new public housing units or the funding must be
returned to HUD. This is a fund separate from the
Affordable Housing Development Fund.
Definition of Need
The Polk County Housing Continuum (PCHC),
the City of Des Moines Consolidated Plan
and Des Moines Municipal Housing Agency
show that there is a need for:
 Affordable Housing units
 Larger bedroom units within the Public
Housing inventory (3 and 4 bedrooms)
 Eliminating blighted Public Housing units
Proposed Plan





Construction of ten (10) to twenty (20) single family homes to be
located on existing property owned by the Agency over 5 years.
Demolish the most blighted Agency owned properties (5h and
Disposition)
Construct new single family homes with two (2) to four (4)
bedrooms, one (1) to one and a half (1 ½) baths, unfinished
basement and/or a single car garage.
These replacement houses shall complement the existing housing
stock within their respective neighborhoods and be Energy Star
rated.
The Agency will strive to have no more than two (2) Public Housing
homes within a four block radius. (De-concentration)
Supportive Services
Occupants would need to meet HUD and DMMHA Public Housing
admissions policies and guidelines.
 The intent of this supportive services portion of the proposal is to transition
families to self-sufficiency - Cannot require participation
Example of some supportive services offerings are:
 Daycare support to attend classes or job training courses
 Emergency financial support related to transportation needs (personal
vehicle repairs, bus vouchers, etc.)
 Dependents that need tutoring supportive services to be at or above grade
level
 Continuing education/Job training (GED, Associates Degree, Skilled Trade
training or similar professional development program)
 Personal financial management classes
 Home care/preventative maintenance classes
 Other supportive services based on individual needs of family
