The New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency has held two information sessions on the Additional Tax Credits/Fund for Restoration of Multifamily Housing which will be funded from the Super Storm Sandy CDBG grant provided to the State of New Jersey from HUD.  The proposed Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery Action Plan submitted by the State of New Jersey to HUD for approval includes the creation of the Fund for Restoration of Multifamily Housing. This Fund will be administered by the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency (HMFA) and is expected to provide over $104 million in CDBG-DR funding to replenish the stock of quality, affordable housing units lost as a result of Super Storm Sandy.  The NHMFA information sessions provided a description of the Fund’s proposed components, which includes leveraging CDBG-DR funds with the federal Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program.
