Multi-Family Housing Programs

MFH Housing Preservation Grant

The photo above is the before and after photo of a home renovated through the MFH Housing Preservation Grant. The hallways and doors were widened to allow wheelchair access, a new HVAC unit was installed, a new metal roof and new windows to improve insulation. A new sanitary sewer system was installed to meet health department requirements.

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
