Affordable Housing Development Program

The Office of Housing and Community Development is committed to the development of affordable housing in Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky.

Our goal is to offer housing choices to a range of homebuyers and renters, by creating “quality of place” neighborhoods with a diverse blend of affordable housing types, supported by public facilities and other amenities.

NOFA

Develop Louisville, working through its Office of Housing and Community Development ("OHCD"), is soliciting proposals from nonprofits, including Community Housing Development Organizations ("CHDO''), Community Development Corporations (“CDC”) and for-profit developers for "gap financing” needs associated with Metro-wide affordable housing development projects. Louisville Metro Government ("LMG") has set aside funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development ('"HUD'') HOME Investment Partnerships Program ("HOME''), to fund multiple projects.

 
The 2017 NOFA focuses on HOME and the program goals are to offer housing choices to a range of homebuyers and renters, by creating "quality of place" neighborhoods, with a diverse blend of affordable housing types, supported by public facilities and other amenities. LMG has CHDO set-aside, and general HOME dollars available to commit for projects. LMG has allocated, at a minimum, $2,149,888.85 for this NOFA, of which $350,910 reserved for CHDOs to undertake development activities.
