NOFA- Notice for Small-Scale Rental Projects

The City of Raleigh announces the availability of $2 million in funding and building sites via long-term land leases to support the creation of transitional housing and affordable rental projects in which at least one-third of the units are targeted to the <30% AMI rent and income level. The funding source is $2 million in bond proceeds from the City’s 2020 Affordable Housing Bond.

Building sites are single-family lots owned by the City. For most of the lots, a duplex plus an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) are allowed by right by the underlying zoning as a result of recently approved text changes to the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO). It is anticipated that in most instances the ADU will be detached. Responders may explore/consider “tiny homes” as an ADU option and are encouraged to monitor relevant UDO text changes. In limited instances, three or more units in a single structure may be allowed by the underlying zoning. All funding and land leases are contingent upon approval of the proposed development by Raleigh City Council. All developments must be located within the City limits of Raleigh to be eligible.

The application deadline for responding to this Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) is 4:00 PM, Friday, January 21, 2022. Click the link below to view the NOFA.

Funds and/or building sites are only available to non-profit developers or to partnerships between a mission-based non-profit and a for-profit developer. The City is seeking participation by multiple non-profit responders.

Any questions should be addressed to Michael Linsenmeyer at 919-996-6934.
