Pre-Proposal Conference
Agency staff will provide an overview of the Multifamily Housing Nonprofit Transfer Technical Assistance Grant program and the Off-Farm Labor Housing (Off-FLH) Technical Assistance Grant program. The agency recently published a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) announcing $6.9 million in grant funding for technical assistance to facilitate the transfer and preservation of existing Section 515 Rural Rental Housing and $1 million in grant funding to provide technical assistance to applicants for Off-FLH loans and grants. Potential applicants and stakeholders will have the opportunity to provide feedback on the programs and ask questions about the NOFA.
