The Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency has issued a Request for Proposals for new construction or rehabilitation of mixed-use projects seeking financial support. Townships are eligible to apply for funding provided through the Community Revitalization Fund Program. The deadline is November 4.
Mixed-use projects combine residential and retail/commercial space in the same building. These projects can serve as a catalyst for neighborhood revitalization. Examples of projects eligible for funding include:
- The rehabilitation of older or under-utilized buildings for immediate re-use to support community development goals;
- Preparing commercial build-out and business lease space;
- The design of, and structural and legal conversion of, existing buildings;
- The provision of additional units of housing by combining uses in a single, newly constructed or renovated building.
Additional information about the Community Revitalization Fund RFP is posted on the PHFA website. Interested organizations can learn more by contacting Shelby Rexrode at PHFA at (717) 780-1854 or via email at email@example.com.
