Final Program Summary (Application Guidelines)

The Program's objective is to finance the development of additional workforce rental housing in the GO Zone. LRA/OCD envisions using a combination of $80 million of Community Development Block Grant ('CDBG')funds, commensurate tax-exempt bond authority through the LHFA, and 4% Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTCs) also through the LHFA. LRA/OCD reserves the right to decrease the level of CDBG funding prior to the deadline for accepting applications in the event that the LRA/OCD finds it necessary to use these funds to address a housing crisis that presents an emergency for the State of Louisiana. The LRA/OCD may also increase the amount of funding if additional funds become available.
