MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Through its involvement in the Minneapolis/St. Paul Housing Finance Board, the City of Minneapolis is a Suballocator of 9% and 4% Housing Tax Credits (HTCs).

The City solicits applications for 9 percent HTCs through an annual Notice of Funding Availability. The scheme provides a tax discount to owners and investors in approved low-income new construction, rehabilitation and/or acquisition of existing rental structures.

The City distributes 4% of HTCs in conjunction with the issuance of Housing Revenue Bonds. HTC program materials and forms can be found at the URLs listed on the city’s Housing Tax Credits RFP webpage.

Applications will be submitted through SharePoint in 2021. The City encourages applicants to complete the SharePoint access form. If you need assistance filling out the form, please contact Hanna Bekele at 612-673-5193 or Hanna.Bekele@minneapolismn.gov.

Bids for funding must be filed by 4:00 p.m. CDT on August 3, 2021, otherwise, SharePoint access will be revoked. The City reserves the right to reject any and all applications at its sole discretion.

Please keep in mind that the most recent housing tax credit program compliance manual, as well as other critical tax credit compliance information, is available at Affordable Housing Connections (http://www.ahcinc.net/)

The 2022 NOFA Developer Letter which is a copy of the letter given to known tax credit developers informing them of this year's Notice of Funding Availability can be found here: https://www2.minneapolismn.gov/media/content-assets/www2-documents/business/2022-NOFA-Developer-Letter.pdf.
