DHCD ISSUES SPRING NOFA

The Baltimore City Department of Housing & Community Development (DHCD) has announced the Home Investment Partnerships Program Notice of Funds Availability (NOFA) for spring 2019. NOFA funding can be used for City housing and community development projects.

Requests to fund projects for up to $1 million can be made, however some of the monies may not be available until fall 2020 in conjunction with 2019 applications to the State of Maryland for 9 percent Low Income Housing Tax Credits.

DHCD is hosting a pre-proposal conference on Thursday, Feb. 28, 1-3 p.m., at the Benton Building, located at 417 E. Fayette St., Room 346. Agency staff will present an overview of the NOFA process and the requirements for working with funding sources, highlight areas where errors are commonly made, and answer questions.
