Program Description

  Multi-Family Housing Programs

This program creates and preserves affordable multi-family housing units. Loans are made to the HOC, nonprofit organizations, property owners, and for-profit developers. This program provides funding to:

  • preserve existing affordable housing units;
  • construct and acquire affordable housing units;
  • rehabilitate existing rental housing stock;
  • participate in housing or mixed-use developments that will include affordable housing;
  • acquire land to produce affordable housing; and
  • provide low-income rental housing assistance.
Major funding for these projects is provided from the Montgomery Housing Initiative Fund, the Federal HOME Grant, the Federal Community Development Block Grant, and State grants. The program emphasizes the leveraging of County funds with other public and private funds in undertaking these activities.
