The Small Projects Program (SPP) provides a 30-year, zero-percent interest balloon mortgage to residential projects of 15 units or less that are not financed with state or federal low-income housing tax credits (LIHTC). Funds may be used for new construction, rehabilitation of distressed residential properties, or conversion of underused non-residential properties to residential use. Applicants must be non-profit corporations, Housing Development Fund Corporation (HDFCs), municipalities, counties, or housing authorities. Projects must be located in blighted areas that have a substandard, aged housing stock, or vacant non-residential property. Occupancy in a Small Projects Program development is limited to low-income households.
