In light of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the Agency has made the decision to delay the 9% tax credit deadline by 60 days. The Agency is mindful of the challenges in proceeding with predevelopment work and application preparation in the current environment. At the same time, the Agency does not want to halt production of affordable housing, if possible, as the need is only growing as a result of this pandemic and its financial repercussions. At this time, the Agency anticipates no other changes to the submission requirements or underwriting guidelines; however, we will continue to monitor the construction industry and the financial markets in the event changes are needed based on any developing circumstances.
