Capital Financing

MOHCD facilitates the development of new and preservation of existing affordable housing by providing capital financing and operating subsidies through a variety of housing programs designed to implement the City's priorities for affordable housing, including:

  • Creating new Supportive Housing for persons who are homeless or threatened with homelessness or whose physical or mental well-being or ability to function independently and successfully requires that a variety of human services be associated with their residence.
  • Expanding the stock of Family Rental Housing to increase housing opportunities for poor and working families who need safe, secure housing with multiple bedrooms and family-oriented amenities such as play areas and low-cost child care, with particular emphasis on very low and extremely low income families.
  • Meeting the need for affordable and accessible housing opportunities for our aging population and people with disabilities.
  • Preserving Existing Affordable Housing whose affordability is threatened by conversion to market rate housing or the loss of on-going rent or operating subsidies.

Operating Subsidies
