Sadie’s Landing, a $5.8 million development, was financed in large part by federal and state tax credits awarded by the NC Housing Finance Agency. The Agency finances the statewide construction of affordable rental apartments using federal and state housing credits, low-interest loans, and tax-exempt bond allocations.
“Congressman McIntyre has been a good friend to the Agency and to Mr. Antone and has been a strong supporter of the federal housing credit program, which makes these types of developments possible,” said Bob Kucab, executive director of the NC Housing Finance Agency.
The North Carolina Housing Finance Agency is a self-supporting public agency. It has financed 191,000 affordable homes and apartments in the last three decades, including nearly 80,000 homes for first-time home buyers. To learn more, go to www.nchfa.com or call 919-877-5700 or 800-393-0988.
