Request for Proposals (RFP) - Multi-Family Programs


Record of Revisions, UF2012 Request for Proposals (RFP):

November 9, 2012:

  1. Page 38 of the UF 2012 Request for Proposals incorrectly indicated the number of points available under the low tier of Housing Trust Funding scoring points for Fully Accessible and Adaptable, Move-In Ready Units. Specifically, under HTF scoring category viii. (1) and (2) in the RFP, for projects proposing at least five percent of project units that are fully accessible and adapted, move-in ready for persons who have a mobility impairment and at least two percent of projects units similarly accessible for persons with a hearing or vision impairment, there are two (2) points available under this option, not three (3) points.

    Please note that the availability of two (2) scoring points under this option also corresponds to the point availability under the Low-Income Housing Credit Program (LIHC) scoring for the same project feature.

October 24, 2012:

  1. Pages 14 and 15 - A description of the criteria under which the maximum Housing Trust Fund (HTF) funding request per project may be increased from $2 million to $2.4 million incorrectly created two separate criteria - items c.) and d.) - in regard to qualifying under the Green Building Initiative and Energy Efficiency Initiative. Therefore, as stated at HCR's application workshops held in September 2012, in order for HTF projects to qualify for the $2.4 million increased funding request maximum under criteria item c.), the HTF project must qualify under both the Green Building Initiative and the Energy Efficiency Initiative.

    The wording of this section of the RFP is corrected as follows:

    1. HTF Availability/Funding Limits

    Subject to the availability of appropriations, HCR intends to make $32 million in HTF Program funds available to fund site-specific project applications under UF 2012. The maximum per-unit amount of HTF that may be requested is $125,000. The maximum HTF funding request per project is $2 million. However, up to $2.4 million may be requested for projects which meet one or more of the following criteria:

    a.) 50% or more of the units have three or more bedrooms to serve large families (defined as households with five or more persons);

    b.) 50% or more of the units will serve persons with special needs as listed in the UF 2012 Reference Materials, and for which appropriate on- or off-site services will be provided by an experienced service provider, and a significant portion of the project's development financing is provided through a coordinated investment with a federal, State, or local agency; or,

    c.) demonstrate compliance with the requirements of the Green Building Initiative by receiving a score of seven or more of the ten points available under the initiative and demonstrate compliance with the requirements of the Energy Efficiency Initiative (see Section F2).

  2. Page 16 - A description of the criteria under which the maximum NYS HOME Program funding request per project may be increased from $2 million to $2.4 million incorrectly created two separate criteria - items c.) and d.) - in regard to qualifying under the Green Building Initiative and Energy Efficiency Initiative. Therefore, as stated at HCR's application workshops held in September 2012, in order for HOME projects to qualify for the $2.4 million increased funding request maximum under criteria item c.), the HOME project must qualify under both the Green Building Initiative and the Energy Efficiency Initiative.

    The wording of this section of the RFP is corrected as follows:

    1. HOME Availability/Funding Limits

    Subject to the availability of appropriations, HCR intends to make $11 million in HOME funds available to fund site-specific projects under UF 2012.

    The maximum HOME funding request per project is $2 million. However, up to $2.4 million may be requested for projects which meet one or more of the following criteria:
