Rental Assistance Revolving Fund

Program Purpose:

The program accepted its first application in October 1993. The rules are similar to the Rental Housing Revolving Fund’s interim construction financing. To supplement the $11.5 million currently remaining in the interim construction financing program, a taxable bond is planned. At an approximated rate of 8% for the taxable bond funds and 0% for the interim construction financing program funds, it is projected that the interest rate on the rental interim construction fund will be approximately 4 – 5 percent. Applications are accepted on a continual basis.

The interim construction financing is to be used solely for rental housing and preference must be given first to private non-profit and for-profit entities and secondly to the Corporation.
