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, of which the Housing Levy is the largest. OH’s funding announcements are often part of a larger combined announcement of funds for homeless housing and services across King County. Also on this page is the Homebuyer NOFA.

NOFA Intent to Apply
Developers interested in applying for the Rental Housing Program through the NOFA process are encouraged to submit an Intent to Apply form. OH typically requests these forms each January.
