Subsidized Affordable Housing and the HUD 223(f) Loan Program
Using HUD’s subsidized affordable housing programs, tenants receive rent assistance for housing, but must pay at least 30% of their income towards housing costs (rent and utilities). Some examples include Section 8 Public Housing, HOPWA Facility-Based Housing, and Homeless Project-Based Units. Properties financed with HUD 223(f) loans are eligible for the Section 8 program, and, if they are already part of a HUD legacy program, such as the rent supplement, rental assistance payment, or Section 8 moderate rehabilitation programs, they can also qualify for the HUD Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program. This can assist property owners in the process of making long-term improvements to their properties.
