NOFA- Notice to Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) Developers

The City of Raleigh is seeking to increase the supply of affordable rental housing for its low-to moderate-income residents. To help achieve that objective, funds are available on a competitive basis in the form of gap financing for both 9% tax credit and 4% tax credit projects. Proposed projects must comply with the City’s Affordable Housing Location Policy. It is now also required that 10% of units in 4% bond deals requesting City funding target 30% of Area Median Income and 25% of units in 9% tax credit developments target 30% Area Median Income. 

In some instances, assistance may be available from the City to write down site acquisition costs in priority locations. Given funding limitations, prospective developers are encouraged to consult with City staff prior to application submittal.

Applications requesting assistance from the City for 9% and first round of 4% bond deal projects will be due by Feb. 12, 2021. Applications for other 4% tax-exempt bond deal projects will be accepted anytime before October 1, 2021 with the specific due date to be announced later by NCHFA. Application guidelines and instructions are set forth within the Request for Proposals attached below.
