CA Dept. of Housing and Community Development - Multifamily Finance Super NOFA. Deadline: 6/28/22
2022 Multifamily Finance Super NOFA
The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) is pleased to announce publication of the Multifamily Finance Final Guidelines and Notice of Funding Availability (Super NOFA). The Multifamily Finance Super NOFA and its applicable guidelines are intended to advance the state’s goal of creating 2.5 million homes by 2030 according to the 2022 Statewide Housing Plan. Multifamily Finance Super NOFA makes our multifamily housing funds accessible to more developers and communities, more equitable in serving the lowest-income Californians, and more targeted to achieve better outcomes in health, climate, and household stability. The Super NOFA streamlines our multifamily programs into a single application process consistent with the requirements of Assembly Bill 434.
