The HOME Rental Program has been designed to provide HOME funds to private and nonprofit owners and developers of low-income rental housing units. The HOME Rental Program provides low-interest rate loans to eligible housing developers for the acquisition, rehabilitation, and/or new construction of multifamily housing. The HOME Rental Program loan may be the primary source of financing or may bridge the gap between the developer’s primary financing and the total development costs. The rates and terms of the loans are established during the underwriting and review of the final proposal. The minimum term of the HOME Rental loan is 15 years for rehabilitation and 20 years for new construction.
In 2017, the WVHDF committed $2,406,225 to finance the acquisition and new construction of three affordable housing multifamily residential projects, which contain 19 total HOME units, under the HOME Rental Program.
