          printed to be committed to the Committee on Housing, Construction  and

        AN  ACT  to  amend  the  private housing finance law, in relation to the
          aggregate annual income of low income persons or families eligible for

          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-

     1    Section 1. Paragraph (a) of subdivision 2 of section 31 of the private
     2  housing  finance  law, as amended by chapter 260 of the laws of 1996, is
     3  amended to read as follows:
     4    (a) The dwelling or non-housekeeping accommodations without board in a
     5  company project shall be available for persons or families of low income
     6  whose probable aggregate annual income at  the  time  of  admission  and
     7  during  the  period of occupancy does not exceed, the greater of (i) the
     8  median income for such persons or families for the metropolitan  statis-
     9  tical  area  in which the project is located, or if a project is located
    10  outside a metropolitan statistical area,  the  median  income  for  such
    11  persons  or  families for the county in which the project is located, as
    12  most recently determined by the United States department of housing  and
    13  urban  development, in which case any person or family becoming eligible
    14  for admission pursuant to this subparagraph shall pay, from the time  of
    15  admission,  a  rental  surcharge as provided for in subdivision three of
    16  this section, computed on the basis of the income limitations applicable
    17  to such persons or families in the absence of this subparagraph, or (ii)
    18  [seven] eight times the rental, including the value or cost to  them  of
    19  heat,  light,  water  and  cooking  fuel,  of  the dwellings that may be
    20  furnished to such persons or families, except that in the case of  fami-
    21  lies  with three or more dependents, such ratio shall not exceed [eight]
    22  nine to one. The "probable aggregate  annual  income"  in  the  case  of
    23  dwelling accommodations means the annual income of the chief wage earner

                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD09545-01-9

        S. 4133                             2
     1  of the family, plus all other income of other members of the family over
     2  the  age  of  twenty-one years, plus a proportion of income of gainfully
     3  employed members under the age of twenty-one years, the proportion to be
     4  determined  by the company as approved by the commissioner or the super-
     5  vising agency, as the case may be, excluding therefrom  a  deduction  of
     6  fifteen  thousand  dollars  from the income of secondary wage earners of
     7  the family or a larger deduction if approved by the commissioner or  the
     8  supervising  agency,  as  the  case  may be, except that the company, as
     9  approved by the commissioner or the supervising agency, as the case  may
    10  be, may exclude a proportion of the income of other members of the fami-
    11  ly  over  the  age  of  twenty-one  years for the purpose of determining
    12  eligibility for admission or continued occupancy,  or  for  establishing
    13  the rental of such family, or for all such purposes; in the case of such
    14  non-housekeeping  accommodations it means the annual income of the occu-
    15  pant, provided that the commissioner or supervising agency, as the  case
    16  may be, may make rules and regulations relative to the allocation of the
    17  income  of  a family among the members thereof for the purpose of deter-
    18  mining the income attributable to such occupant.
    19    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
