Just In Time Project Funding

The Department of Housing announces the availability of funding for developers of market-rate residential or mixed-use rental projects for which the necessary discretionary approvals have been obtained, who are interested in a subsidy to enable them to restrict a portion of the units at an affordable level. 

The goal of this NOFA is to expand affordable housing opportunities quickly by encouraging the inclusion of affordable units in market rate multi-family rental housing developments that are approaching the closing and construction stage.   Affordable units must be affordable to persons with incomes no higher than 80% of the Area Median Income, but lower affordability thresholds are strongly encouraged.  Rent must be net of the estimated costs of utilities paid by the tenant and must not exceed the affordable level at the chosen AMI level.  All restrictions must remain in the project for a minimum of 10 years.

The aggregate amount of funding to be made available under this NOFA is approximately $8 million.  No Project should contemplate financial assistance from DOH in an amount greater than $5,000,000 or less than $100,000. 
 
Applications for funding under this NOFA will be accepted on a rolling basis beginning October 15, 2014, and continuing on a rolling basis until all funds are committed.  Applications should be sent to the attention of Karen Santana at the State of Connecticut Department of Housing, 505 Hudson Street, Hartford, CT 06106.  Interested developers may contact Karen Santana via email at karen.santana@ct.gov with any questions regarding this NOFA.
