Multi-Family Preservation Program

Program (?) Multi-Family Preservation Program
Program Description

Under the Multi-Family Preservation Program, HPD selects prequalified developers to acquire at-risk multi-family buildings and offers financing through the Acquisition Loan Fund. Targeted buildings are at risk of private mortgage foreclosure, tax lien foreclosure, or have mortgage debt that is insurmountable. HUD multi-family buildings are eligible if they are under foreclosure by HUD, can no longer sustain HUD use restrictions, or have mortgage debt from HUD that is insurmountable. Once developers are selected based on experience, access to financial resources, and the ability to manage multi-family housing, they may acquire control of the buildings through any of three ways: acquiring them directly from current owners through negotiation, acquiring the debt and foreclosing, or acquiring the property from lenders who themselves acquired the buildings through foreclosure. HPD will also make rehabilitation financing available should the purchased building be in a distressed condition.
