The Office of Housing’s Rental Housing Program funds the development of affordable rental housing in Seattle using the Housing Levy Rental Preservation and Production Program funds, federal funds, and other fund sources.
At least once per year, OH publishes a Notice of Funds Available (NOFA) for the Rental Housing Program.
The NOFA describes specific funding priorities and requirements for each available fund source.
Project sponsors that are planning to apply for OH funds to develop affordable rental housing are required to prepare their project for application through the following stages. Before considering applying for funds, applicants should also review OH’s funding notices and policy documents to become familiar with the priorities, processes and requirements associated with OH funds.
OH encourages developers interested in applying for the Rental Housing Program to submit an Intent to Apply form. OH typically requests these forms each January.
