CA Dept. of Housing and Community Development - Portfolio Reinvestment Program. Deadline: 7/29/22
Portfolio Reinvestment Program
Potential conversion of affordable housing to market rate housing is an ongoing and critical statewide problem. Some housing Projects secured with Department loans are reaching the end of their affordability periods and are at-risk of converting to market rate housing. Lack of access to financial resources to rehabilitate these Projects and extend the affordability periods increases the risk of conversion to market rate housing. The purpose of the PRP is to decrease the risk of conversion to market rate housing, and extend the remaining useful life and the long-term affordability of these Department funded housing Projects by making available Project loans for rehabilitation and capitalized operating reserves. Funding available under this Notice of Funding Availability and Guidelines (NOFA) is derived from the Coronavirus State Fiscal Recovery Fund (CSFRF), established by the federal American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) (Public Law 117-2). The funds have been allocated to this program through the 2021-22 California state budget. Activities funded through CSFRF must comport with federal requirements.
