NYHomes (HFA/SONYMA) -
All Affordable Program

Purpose

The All Affordable Program offers financing to encourage the creation of multifamily rental housing affordable to households earning no more than 60% of the Area Median Income, adjusted for family size. 
 
To qualify for Low Income Housing Tax Credits, household income cannot exceed 60% of the AMI, adjusted for family size. Other subsidies are often required to complete the financing structure of all affordable projects.  These subsidy sources often require income limits of 50% or less than AMI.  All low income units are subject to a NYSHFA Regulatory Agreement.
 
The tax-exempt bond financing generates 4% “as of right” Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC), which can either be syndicated to generate part of the required equity a borrower must contribute to the financing or be utilized to offset the borrower’s tax payments. 
 
Subsidy financing, which may take the form of a subordinate loan or grant, may be available from federal, state and local sources such as the New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal, the Federal Home Loan Bank, federal HOME monies and the HFA’s Empire Housing Fund. 
 
All bond financed mortgages, including those funded under this program, must be credit enhanced. 

Eligibility

Allocations are subject to an analysis of the project’s need, the projected benefits to low income households, and the availability of tax credits. 
 
Applications for financing under this program are accepted on a continuous basis.
