The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development sometimes needs to sell multifamily housing projects that are owned by the Department or are subject to a mortgage held by the Department. The property can also be sold with a grant for the rehabilitation of the property if the new owners meet certain requirements. See Program #14.199 Multifamily Property Disposition at Department of Housing and Urban Development, Office of Housing, Multifamily Housing Programs, Office of Asset Management, Room 6160, 451 7th Street, SW., Washington, DC 20410; 202-708-0614, extension 2680
Called Mortgage Insurance for the Purchase or Refinancing of Existing Multifamily Housing Projects and referred to as Program #14.155 in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance, this program provides money for existing multifamily housing projects, whether conventionally financed or subject to federally insured mortgages at the time of application for mortgage insurance. Only projects not requiring substantial rehabilitation are acceptable under this section. The estimated cost of required repairs may not exceed 15 percent of the estimated value after repairs or $6,500 per unit adjusted by a high cost factor, whichever is greater and may not involve the replacement of more than one major system. The program has statutory per unit mortgage limits which vary according to the size of the unit, the type of structure, and the location of the project. There are also loan-to- value and debt service limitations. Prevailing wage requirements under the Davis-Bacon Act do not apply to this program.

Called the Rural Rental Housing Loans Programs and referred to as Program #10.415 in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance, it provides economically designed and constructed rental and cooperative housing and related facilities suited for rural residents. Loans can be used to construct, or to purchase and substantially rehabilitate rental or cooperative housing or to develop manufactured housing projects. Housing as a general rule will consist of multi-units with two or more family units and any appropriately related facilities. Funds may also be used to provide approved recreational and service facilities appropriate for use in connection with the housing and to buy and improve the land on which the buildings are to be located. Loans may not be made for nursing, special care, or institutional-type homes).Contact your local office of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Housing Service
Called The Rural Housing Preservation Grants Program and referred to as Program #10.433 in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance, this program helps very low- and low-income rural residents individual homeowners, rental property owners (single/multi-unit) or by providing the consumer cooperative housing projects (co-ops) the necessary assistance to repair or rehabilitate their dwellings. These objectives will be accomplished through the establishment of repair/rehabilitation, projects run by eligible applicants. This program is intended to make use of and leverage any other available housing programs which provide resources to very low and low-income rural residents to bring their dwellings up to development standards.
