Charlotte County Requests Affordable Housing Developer Applications
CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (Sept. 10, 2019) – The Charlotte County Commission is requesting applications for local government support for the development of affordable housing. The county provides support for the construction, rehabilitation and permanent financing of multi-family housing developments. About $425,000 is available. Up to this amount can be used for multi-family developments seeking Housing Credits from Florida Housing Finance Corporation pursuant to FHFC RFA 2019-113, and Local Government Area of Opportunity Funding from the county. Applications are due no later than 5 p.m., Oct. 8, 2019.
All applications will be reviewed by the county's Affordable Housing Advisory Committee, which will make recommendations to the County Commission at its Oct. 22, 2019 meeting. The commission will decide whether to authorize a commitment letter and loan to the recommended developer. The commission will not consider issuing a commitment letter to provide financing for any applicant that has not satisfied the general requirements set forth in the guidelines, submitted a timely, complete, and acceptable application and complied with all of the procedures and requirements contained within the county's application procedures and program guidelines. To view the Request For Applications, with procedures and guidelines, and to obtain a copy of the application, visit the Affordable Housing Advisory Committee page on the county's website:
