Developing affordable multifamily housing in rural communities is an arduous and challenging task. Government housing programs are notoriously complicated, highly competitive and integrated with uncertain financing sources. Understanding the many regulations can consume an enormous amount of your valuable time.
From groundbreaking to grand opening, PMHDC offers inclusive construction management services that will deliver your project to completion on time and on budget.
As affordable housing specialists, PMHDC handles every aspect of construction oversight. PMHDC works closely with our selected architect(s), issues all construction bids in a fiscally responsible manner and will hire the right contractors for your project. In addition, PMHDC will coordinate the efforts of all project professionals, establish relationships with the various inspection agencies, obtain necessary permits, draft appropriate agency construction draws, document change orders and comply with reasonable construction timelines.
PMHDC has the knowledge to ensure your project complies with all design, construction and accessibility provisions required by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Americans with Disabilities Act; Fair Housing Act; National Environmental Policy Act, local building codes and other appropriate federal, state, and local regulations.
Submitting formal loan and grant applications is both rigorous and highly competitive, with a limited number of loans/grants awarded each year according to a variety of annual budget allocations. But, in order to successfully create an affordable housing community within your region, entities must be knowledgeable about each agency's requirements and the rating and ranking criteria affecting your loan/grant application.
This means attention to detail is paramount, with knowledge of legislative and treasury appropriations bills, funding agencies fiscal year appropriations bill, HUD's Super NOFA, EZ/EC Empowerment Zones, census tracts, Consolidated Plans, the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC), National Environmental Policy Act, income and area limitations, proforma budget projections, etc. Entities must also understand the myriad of subsidization formulas available through HUD, HOME, USDA – Rural Development, Arizona Department of Housing, CDBG, and many specialized funding resources. All of these formulas are complex and take a great deal of time to fully comprehend.
Why not allow PPEP Microbusiness and Housing Development Corporation assist your project?
PMHDC’s development services team will assist entities identify potential project sites; prepare the loan/grant application(s); create a comprehensive budget(s); contract with architect(s); act as liaison with funding agencies through the "Firm Commitment" process; and develop a legal entity if necessary. But, PMHDC doesn't stop there — we also assist with tax exemptions; provide appropriate legal and accounting services; ensure compliance with national, state, and local building regulations; and oversee mortgage finalization.
