Housing authorities and other public agencies cannot be designated as developers. However, public agencies can be subrecipients. A non-profit spin-off organization of a housing or redevelopment authority can be designated as a developer if that entity is private, not public, and distinct from the housing authority in matters such as board membership and organizational control. See the NSP Policy Alert: Guidance on Developers, Subrecipients, and Contractors-Implications of Using Different Entity Types to Carry Out NSO-funded Activities.
