Grants to New Mexico nonprofit corporations and state and local government agencies to develop new single-family housing projects on a property located in Albuquerque. Funding is intended to generate affordable housing options for low and moderate-income families.

The development shall leverage the City’s contribution by maximizing the total units of housing to be developed, and provide that a minimum of 51% of all units are affordable to households at/or below 80% AMI, and any other applicable statutory and/or regulatory requirements of 24 CFR Part 570, related to the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds which were used to acquire the property. Additionally, the development must also meet the applicable statutory and/or regulatory requirements of 24 CFR Part 92, related to the available HOME Investment Partnerships grant funds, if used by the project and 2 CFR Part 200 related to the Uniform Administrative Requirements for federal awards.

The development should be pedestrian friendly and designed to create a sense of community through a site plan including building arrangement, amenities, and open space appropriate to the needs of populations to be served.

When applicable to the specific project, applicants should address in the proposal narratives how proposed projects will support the Department in meeting its 2018-2022 identified priorities:
