Synopsis: PILOTs dedicated to affordable housing trust fund. Establishes a property tax
exemption for real property that was constructed, rehabilitated, or acquired after December 31,
2001, to provide housing to income eligible persons under the federal low income housing tax
credit program. Permits the governing body of a political subdivision to enter into agreements
concerning payments in lieu of taxes for the same real property and provides that the payments
are to be deposited in the political subdivision's affordable housing fund. (This conference
committee report changes the name of the "bureau of community services" within the division
of family and children to the "bureau of family resources" and changes the definition of
"community action agency" to include: (1) a private nonprofit organization that is geographically
located within a community; (2) a private nonprofit organization that is located in a county or
counties contiguous to or within reasonable proximity of a community; and (3) a political
subdivision, if there is otherwise no qualified nonprofit organization that meets the criteria to be
a community action agency. This conference committee report also expands the existing Marion
county PILOTS program to include Dearborn county.)
