Multi-Family Supportive Housing

Financing Program

The Multi-Family Supportive Housing Financing Program provides financial assistance to owners/sponsors of housing where the housing is provided in tandem with social service programs related to the needs of the residents. Projects consisting of new construction, acquisition and/or rehabilitation, reconstruction or conversion are eligible.

Projects eligible for financing include permanent rental housing, single room occupancy (SRO), transitional housing, and group homes/shelters with ongoing social services designed for and directly related to the needs of the residents, as well as emergency crisis housing, housing for homeless families, drug/alcohol rehabilitation and recovery housing, housing for persons with a disability, and housing for persons diagnosed with severe mental illness.

Generally, this program is funded by New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority every fiscal year (July 1 through June 30) using a variety of federal and non-federal funding sources. One or two funding rounds are scheduled each year and each funding round is announced with the publication of a Request for Proposals (RFP) on New Hampshire Housing’s website, with a due date 60 to 90 days after the publication of the RFP. The RFP will identify any special priorities or rules for that funding round.
