(Washington, DC) - John E. Hall, Director, Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), announces a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for funding under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, the Home Investment Partnership (HOME) program, the Housing Production Trust Fund (HPTF) program, 9% Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) program, the Community Challenge Planning Grant (CCPG) program and the Department of Mental Health (DMH) funds administered by DHCD.  CDBG and HOME funds for this NOFA are being made available from anticipated FY 2013 budget funds.  This NOFA is being conducted pursuant to the FY 2013 (October 1, 2012 to September 30, 2013) Consolidated Action Plan prepared for submission to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  Community Facilities, Housing Counseling, Facade Improvement, Small Business Technical Assistance and the Tenant Purchase Technical Assistance programs will also be funded under this NOFA.

HOUSING AND COMMUNITY FACILITIES (DFD)
The District is interested in financing projects that focus on the following categories:
1) elderly housing; 2) special needs housing; 3) housing for chronically homeless individuals and families in mixed-income buildings with supportive services; 4) preservation of housing affected by expiring federal subsidies; 5) new/substantial rehabilitation of housing (5 or more units); 6) homeownership; 7) new construction and preservation of affordable housing units; 8) permanent supportive housing units for the exclusive use of DMH consumers and 9) community facilities to serve low to moderate income persons.

TENANT PURCHASE TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE (DFD)
The District will provide funding to a community based non-profit organization to administer the Tenant Purchase Technical Assistance Program, which assists low to moderate income tenants of the District of Columbia who are interested in gaining control of their buildings through a condominium or cooperative purchase or a lease or rental agreement.

HOUSING COUNSELING, FACADE IMPROVEMENTS & SMALL BUSINESS ASSISTANCE RFA (RCS)
The District will provide funding to community based non-profit organizations to provide counseling services and training for homeownership, home preservation, tenants, and tenant groups.  These services will support several DHCD housing programs and initiatives, including, but not limited to Housing Purchase Assistance Program (HPAP), Single Family Residential Rehabilitation, Lead Safe Washington, Affordable Dwelling Units, and Inclusionary Zoning.  In addition, grantees provide credit counseling, foreclosure counseling, tenant education, eviction counseling, as well as other housing services. The District will also provide funding to community based non-profit organizations for DHCD’s Facade Improvement Program and Small Business Assistance Program. In the Façade Improvement Program, non-profits will be selected to implement storefront improvement projects in targeted commercial areas.  In the Small Business Assistance Program, non-profits will be selected to provide small business support services in targeted commercial areas which are intended to empower businesses and create jobs.
