Multi-Family Housing Preservation and Revitalization (MPR) Loans and Grants
Multi-Family Housing Programs offer Rural Rental Housing Loans to provide affordable multi-family rental housing for very low-, low-, and moderate-income families; the elderly; and persons with disabilities. This is primarily a direct mortgage program, but funds may also be used to buy and improve land and to provide necessary facilities such as water and waste disposal systems. In addition, deep subsidy rental assistance is available to eligible families. The goal of the MPR program is to restructure Rural Rental Housing loans and Off-Farm Labor Housing loans and provide grants to revitalize Multi-Family Housing projects in order to extend the affordable use of these projects without displacing tenants due to increased rents.  Visit the following sites for information and/or assistance:

  • Transfer and MPR Underwriting Template

  • RD developed this standardized underwriting template for Agency underwriters and reviewers to document the terms of proposed MFH transfers and MPR transactions.  This tool is used internally to analyze the transaction proposed by the applicant and verify compliance with program requirements, standards and principles.  The functions use agency records and other administrative program guidance for analyzing the proposed project costs and operations in conjunction with the information submitted by the applicant as part of RD's formal application review and approval process.  Any preliminary results indicated by the tool are analyzed for compliance with program requirements.  A final underwriting template completed by RD will document the conditions of formal RD approval and compliance with currently applicable program policies, guidelines, and standards, including RTO,  rents, equity and other determinations made by the Agency.  This template may be modified from time to time in both content and finding interpretations as determined appropriate by the Agency to meet program goals and objectives.  Any questions may be directed to the RD Area Office servicing official for additional clarification and more detailed explanation of Handbook, program NOFA requirements and other applicable program policies.

  • Transfer Preliminary Analysis Tool

  • This tool allows applicants and borrowers to preliminarily explore how their proposed transfer transaction may be viewed by RD and suggest areas or issues that will need to be more fully developed and explored with the RD servicing official as the proposal is developed by the buyer, seller and other funding entities. It is NOT a complete analysis and is primarily intended to open up communications among all parties to gain a better understanding of RD program requirements and conditions that must be met during the formal review and approval process. 

  • MPR Preliminary Analysis Tool

  • This tool allows applicants to preliminarily explore how their proposed MPR transaction may be impacted with the tools that RD offers through the MPR NOFA, and to then suggest areas or issues that need to be more fully developed and explored as the proposal is developed under the NOFA.  Note: It is NOT a complete analysis tool.

  • New Construction Underwriting Template

  • This standardized underwriting Template was developed for Agency underwriters and reviewers to document the terms of proposed New Construction RRH and FLH transactions after selection under the respective NOFAs. This tool is used internally to analyze the transaction proposed by the applicant and verify compliance with program requirements, standards and principles. The functions use agency records for analyzing the proposed project costs and operations in conjunction with the information submitted by the applicant as part of the formal application. Questions may be directed to the RD Area Office servicing official for additional clarification and more detailed explanation of Handbook and/or Program NOFA requirements.
