Public Housing Mixed-Income Community Demonstration Program

Provides planning and pre-development funding to Local Housing Authorities (LHAs) interested in partnering with a developer to pursue mixed-income redevelopment of their state-aided public housing portfolio.

Program Information

This program, announced in November 2015, provides planning and pre-development funding to Local Housing Authorities (LHAs) interested in partnering with a developer to pursue mixed-income redevelopment of their state-aided public housing portfolio. The goal of the Program is to increase the overall stock of rental housing in the Commonwealth, while leveraging the resources generated by development of new moderate- and market-rate housing to repair and preserve public housing. Priority is given to applicants who can best demonstrate the feasibility of a proposed mixed-income redevelopment. In subsequent years, DHCD may make funds available through its bond allocation to cover a portion of design and construction costs for projects that are shown through the Demonstration grants to be financially feasible and cost-effective. The Department considers a project cost-effective that does not rely on existing affordable housing resources and has a total development cost per unit that reflects the market in which it is located.

How it Works

Notices of Funding Availability (NOFA) will be periodically issued to LHAs by Public Housing Notice. Applicants must procure a development partner, and then jointly produce a response to DHCD’s NOFA for consideration.

Who is Eligible

LHAs with state public housing developments in locations with very strong market housing prices.
