Affordable housing school cost reimbursement.
(a) As used in this Section, the following terms have the following meanings:
"Affordable multifamily housing" means the preservation or creation of any homes (condominiums, apartments, townhomes, etc.) serving non-age-restricted households, as part of a plan under this Act, in structures that are not detached single-family units and that are affordable to families whose annual income is less than 80 percent of the areawide median income as determined by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. Affordability shall be assured for a period of not less than 30 years.
"Governor's Housing Plan" means "Building for Success: The Governor's Housing Plan" created as a result of Executive Order #2003-18.
(b) For each school year, commencing with the 2006-2007 school year, the State shall pay to each school district an affordable multifamily housing school cost reimbursement. This reimbursement must be calculated separately for each school district in an amount equal to $1,123 for each affordable multifamily housing unit located within the district that has at least 2 bedrooms, plus $562 per unit for each bedroom in the unit in addition to the first 2 bedrooms. No school district may receive a reimbursement under this Section for affordable multifamily housing unless the Illinois Housing Development Authority first certifies that the housing advances the preservation or live-near-work goals of the Governor's Housing Plan.
(c) All reimbursements under this Section are subject to appropriation. If appropriations are insufficient, then reimbursement must be prorated.
