WFH Credit Enhancement

Workforce Housing (WFH) Credit Enhancement is a tool to promote the development of middle-income housing in rapidly appreciating neighborhoods. To help developers advance these projects, PHDC offers partial loan guarantees on the project’s construction financing. This financing assistance is available for any workforce housing project built on land acquired through a public agency in Philadelphia, including land made available by PHDC through a request for proposal.
