At times PHDC will promote funding opportunities. When we do, we’ll issue a Request for Proposals (RFPs) or Qualifications (RFQs).

RFP for Affordable Rental Production and Preservation Housing Projects August 2021

The Division of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) is soliciting proposals to finance the development and preservation of affordable rental units designed to serve low- and moderate-income households using funding from the Philadelphia Housing Trust Fund (HTF), federal HOME and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds. This Request for Proposals (RFP) is designed to assist in providing gap financing for rental production and preservation projects that will seek Four Percent Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) from the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA).  Gap financing for preservation projects not seeking Four Percent LIHTCs are also eligible under this RFP.
