Notice of Funding Availability: Multi-Unit Supportive Housing And Project Based Vouchers

February 17, 2021

The New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority (Authority) and New Hampshire Community Development Finance Authority (CDFA) are now accepting applications for financing from qualified developers for projects that will provide supportive housing in any area of the state to extremely low-income and low-income households, with a priority for persons experiencing homelessness.

The source of funds for this Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) is the federal Housing Trust Fund (HTF), administered by the Authority and Community Development Block Grant Coronavirus Pandemic funding (CDBG-CV), administered by CDFA. The competitive scores of respondents to this NOFA will also be used to award up to 50 Section 8 Project Based Vouchers (reference 24 CFR Part 983) to those projects which are eligible. It is the intent of the Authority to award both PBVs and deferred (non-amortizing, non-interest–bearing) loans funded with HTF to the highest scoring projects based on the scoring criteria in this NOFA. The Authority will make at least $2,080,000 in HTF funding available and CDFA will make up to $3,000,000 in CDBG-CV available.

All proposals will be evaluated on scoring criteria developed by the Authority/CDFA.  The scoring criteria and other information regarding the application process is included in the NOFA.

All application materials must be uploaded electronically to Apricot Social Solutions,  by 4:30 PM on Thursday, May 20, 2021. Contact Joellyn Crowley no later than Thursday, May 6, 2021, at jcrowley@nhhfa.org or (603) 310-9224 to set up an Apricot account.

Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to attend a virtual informational meeting on Tuesday, March 2, 2021 from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. Registration for this meeting is required; please CLICK HERE to register.
