Supportive Housing Development Program

The North Carolina Housing Finance Agency’s Supportive Housing Development Program helps nonprofits and local governments develop emergency, transitional and permanent housing for persons who are homeless and/or have disabilities.

Supportive Housing Development Program

The program provides interest-free loans up to a maximum per development of $500,000 in large CDBG Entitlement Cities, $600,000 in small CDBG entitlement Cities and $700,000 in non-entitlement areas. To qualify, projects must include or make available appropriate support services for the residents.

In addition, the housing must serve individuals and families who earn below 50% of area median income. Rents and utilities cannot exceed 30% of gross household income for the residents.

Eligible populations are homeless or non-homeless households that require supportive services, including persons with mental, physical, or developmental disabilities; persons with substance use disorders; persons diagnosed with AIDS and related diseases; and special populations on a case-by-case basis.

The Supportive Housing Development Program loans are permanent, interest-free loans. Nonprofits and local governments that are interested in applying for Supportive Housing Development Program funds must schedule a pre-application meeting and site visit prior to submitting an application. To request a site visit, please submit the Project Description and Site Visit Request form.
