Mixed Income Market Initiative - Request for Expressions of Interest

Mixed Income Market Initiative - Request for Expressions of Interest

Program Description

In furtherance of the vision set forth in Housing Our Neighbors, the City, acting through its Department of Housing Preservation and Development ("HPD"), is pleased to release this Request for Expressions of Interest ("RFEI") to develop mixed income housing projects within the five boroughs.

Submissions to the RFEI may inform changes to existing financing term sheets or the creation of new financing programs. HPD may select one, more than one, or none of the proposals received through this RFEI. Proposal selection through this REFI indicates HPD's willingness to engage in an iterative process to provide financing or other assistance. Selected projects will be prioritized in HPD's pipeline, to the extent that project readiness and resources permit.

HPD's goal is to support innovative financing models that do not require Low Income Housing Tax Credits ("LIHTC"), thereby limiting the use of heavily constrained resources and expediting the creation of affordable housing. It is HPD's hope that this RFEI will help advance the City's Fair Housing goals by generating proposals in areas with limited affordable housing.
