Establishing partnerships and assembling a diverse capital stack are key components when financing housing developments. One often-overlooked method is to seek financing and technical assistance from the federal government. HUD manages several key finance programs that are integral to affordable housing development in urban areas, and the USDA does the same for rural areas across the country. Projects in the housing sector rely on a varied stream of debt and equity often contributed by the numerous project partner’s financing or funding capacity. HUD, the USDA, and the CDFI Fund have also implemented regulatory changes in their programs to assist communities in COVID-19 recovery efforts, and new programs have been created to meet unfulfilled financing needs. During this installment of the CDFA Federal Financing Webinar Series, experts will cover how development finance agencies can leverage financing from the federal government to support housing projects in their communities.
