PA Housing Finance Agency RFP For Local Housing Initiatives Funded In Part By Act 13 Drilling Impact Fees

The PA Housing Finance Agency Monday issued a Request for Proposals soliciting applications from organizations for projects to improve the availability and affordability of housing across the Commonwealth. Proposals are due November 16.
$39.8 million in funding for this RFP is being provided through the PA Housing Affordability and Rehabilitation Enhancement Fund funded by the Act 13 impact fee levied on natural gas companies, a portion of the Realty Transfer Tax, and money from the National Housing Trust Fund.
“The success of the PHARE program to date has been grounded in the decision to let local governments and organizations determine where the greatest need and opportunity is for affordable housing investments,” said Brian A. Hudson Sr., PHFA executive director and CEO. “That’s why it’s so critical in this RFP that we hear from local groups who know firsthand what’s happening in their communities and how best to respond. We need their input to make the best use of these housing dollars.”
PHFA will hold webinars on this program September 20 and October 4.
