MDHA is making $13,600,678.37 available in subordinate financing for Round 2 of the Affordable Housing Gap Financing (AHGF) program. Qualified for-profit and non-profit developers with “shovel-ready” projects already approved for financing or those that can’t complete construction due to a financing gap related to increased costs and/or supply chain disruptions are encouraged to apply.

Eligible projects must have received a reservation of low-income housing tax credits (LIHTC) under either the 4% or 9% programs through the Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA). They must also be a project with a financing gap or a project already under construction with a financing gap. The developer will need to restructure the unit mix and financing to provide a minimum of 2% of the units in the project to be leased to the intended population in accordance with the terms of this RFA.
