2021 Tax-Exempt Bond Application Now Closed
Due to limitations on available private activity bond cap, the Universal Funding Application (UFA) for multifamily developments utilizing Tax-Exempt Bonds (TEB) + 4% Low-Income Housing Tax Credits is now closed. For developers who have already been in discussion with Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC) about potential bond projects in the pipeline, we will continue to work with you on a case-by-case basis as resources allow.  Until further notice, KHC will maintain a waiting list of projects seeking TEB financing and the UFA will be opened to projects in waiting-list order as bond cap is available.

As a reminder, any applicant wishing to submit a funding application to KHC must first receive capacity approval for the development team members. Development team members without a current approval letter must complete the Development Team Capacity Application located within the UFA no less than 60 days prior to the submission of the funding application.
