Recorded webinar and FAQs
This month the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) conducted in-person and virtual workshops to provide information about the Multifamily Super NOFA program and application process. A recording of the presentation and PowerPoint slides are now available on HCD's Super NOFA webpage.
HCD staff has developed a frequently asked questions document, based on recorded question and answer sessions in the recent virtual and in-person workshops, as well as questions that have been received through the Super NOFA mailbox.
The first release of these Super NOFA Questions and Answers (Q&A) is now available at Multifamily SuperNOFA Round 1 Q&A. Additional Q&As will be published each week.

Background: The PRP aims to preserve existing HCD-funded affordable housing projects by extending and restructuring affordability agreements; extending loan maturity dates; providing new low-interest long-term loans for rehabilitation; and providing forgivable loans to capitalize short-term operating subsidies.
This funding is restricted to existing rental multifamily projects in HCD's portfolio that have a HCD affordability restriction that has already expired, or that will expire, by December 31, 2026.
