The proposal shall set forth the program of affordable housing to be conducted, the location and number of affordable housing units, the neighborhood area to be served, why the program is needed, the time period for which affordable housing units shall be provided, the estimated amount to be invested in the program, plans for implementing the program and a list of the business firms proposing to provide affordable housing assistance activities which are part of the proposal.  The same type of information shall be provided in proposals for market rate housing in distressed communities.  In the case of rental units of affordable housing, but not market rate housing in distressed communities, all proposals approved by the commission shall require a land use restriction agreement stating the provision of affordable housing on such property for a time period deemed reasonable by the commission.  In the case of owner-occupied units of affordable housing, all proposals approved by the commission shall require a land use restriction agreement for a time period deemed reasonable by the commission requiring any subsequent owner, except a lender with a security interest in the property, to be an owner occupant whose income at the time of acquisition is at or below the level described in section 32.105, and further requiring the acquisition price to any subsequent owner shall not exceed by more than a five percent annual appreciation the acquisition price to the original, eligible owner at the time tax credits are first claimed.  The land use restriction agreement shall constitute a lien as described in subdivision (4) of subsection 3 of section 32.115.  The restriction shall be approved by the property owner and shall be binding on any subsequent owner of the property unless otherwise approved by the commission.  In approving a proposal, the commission may authorize the use of tax credits by one or more of the business firms listed in the proposal and shall establish specific requirements regarding the degree of completion of affordable housing assistance activities or market rate housing activities in distressed communities necessary to be eligible for tax credits provided pursuant to this section.  If, in the opinion of the commission or its delegate, a business firm's investment can more consistently with the purposes of this section be made through a neighborhood organization, tax credits may be allowed as provided in this section.  The commission may approve requests for multiyear credit commitments provided eligibility is maintained.  The commission or its delegate is hereby authorized to promulgate rules and regulations for establishing criteria for evaluating such proposals by business firms for approval or disapproval, for establishing housing priorities for approval or disapproval of such proposals by business firms, and for the certification of eligibility for tax credits authorized pursuant to this section.  The decision of the commission or its delegate to approve or disapprove a proposal pursuant to this section shall be in writing, and if approved, the maximum credit allowable to the business firm shall be stated.  A copy of the decision of the commission or its delegate shall be transmitted to the director of revenue and to the governor.  A copy of the certification approved by the commission and a statement of the total amount of credits approved by the commission, the amount of credits previously taken by the taxpayer and the amount being claimed for the current tax year shall be filed in a manner and form designated by the director of revenue for any tax year in which a tax credit is being claimed.
