Updated NHTF Allocation Estimates $6.5M for NJ

Estimated Almost $6.5 Million to Almost
$15.7 Million Could Come to State

Updated NHTF Allocation Estimates for NJThe National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) has updated its estimates of the amount of funding each state will receive as a result of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) directing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to begin setting aside funds for the National Housing Trust Fund (NHTF) and Capital Magnet Fund (CMF.)

The total amount in the first year will depend on the volume of business for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in 2015. The statute requires that the companies transfer 4.2 basis points of their annual volume of business to fund the #NHTF and the CMF, 65% for the NHTF. The new estimates are based on $250 million or $500 million being available for the NHTF in February 2016.

Join the National Low Income Housing Coalition for a Webinar on the NHTF regulations on Thursday, February 5 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) will provide state and local housing advocates and providers with detailed information on what you need to know to prepare for the first National Housing Trust Fund (NHTF) dollars coming to New Jersey in early 2016.

“This is a game changer. Funding from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will result in NJ receiving at least $6,520,000 in early spring of 2016 to develop supportive housing for extremely low-income households. We still need to work to secure full funding through United for Homes but this initial funding will fill a critical need in NJ.”

Said Richard W. Brown.

If $250 million is available, New Jersey will receive $6,520,000 and if $500 million is available, New Jersey will receive $15,720,000.
