Multi-Family Housing Programs

MFH Housing Preservation Grant

Ms. Mary Jane Hayman is confined to a wheelchair; however, prior to the Multi-Family Housing Preservation Grant, her home was not wheelchair accessible, particularly on the inside of the home. The before and after photos of Ms. Hayman’s home can be seen above. The renovation allows Ms. Hayman access to her entire home.

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. Visit the following site for a complete overview: Multi-Family Housing Programs
