Multifamily Bond Programs - About The Program

The Private Activity Bond Program is administered by the Texas Bond Review Board. The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) is a conduit issuer for the State of Texas and has authority to issue tax-exempt and taxable multifamily Mortgage Revenue Bonds statewide. The bonds are used to fund loans to for-profit and qualifying nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations for the acquisition and rehabilitation or the new construction of affordable rental units. Currently, the bond program receives approximately $2 billion in allocation for the State of which approximately $525 million is set-aside for multifamily housing needs and of this amount TDHCA receives approximately $105 million. TDHCA is currently accepting pre-applications on a monthly basis for those seeking to have TDHCA serve as the bond issuer. The Private Activity Bond program is coupled with the 4% Housing Tax Credit program to maximize the use of State allocations. Developments financed through the program are subject to unit set-aside restrictions for lower income tenants and persons with special needs, tenant services, maximum rent limitations and other requirements as determined by TDHCA and its Board.
