What are Multifamily Bonds?
AHFA provides financing for multifamily housing through Multifamily Bonds, which offer developers lower-than-market interest rates in exchange for reserving a portion of their units for tenants earning less than the area’s median income. Multifamily bonds are issued on a project-specific basis.
Because most of these bonds are tax-exempt, developers receive more favorable interest rates, reducing their interest expense and allowing them to set lower rents. Taxable bonds may be issued as well to offer additional funds for the production of affordable rental housing.
