Taxable Bond Financing

Virginia Housing’s Taxable Bond financing provides an uninsured loan used to facilitate the construction and/or acquisition (with or without rehabilitation) of affordable multifamily rental housing. This financing is available for private, for-profit or not-for-profit developers.

Financing Details

There are specific occupancy requirements that must be met as a condition of this financing. This financing can be used alone, with the competitive 9% federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credit and with other Virginia Housing financing programs.

Additional Criteria

  • Virginia Housing may fund up to:
  • -  the lesser of 90% loan-to-value 95% total approved development cost or
    -  100% of total development cost for not-for-profit developers (excluding developer’s fees).
    These loan amounts should be viewed as limits and not as guaranteed funding levels.

  • Minimum 1.10 debt coverage ratio.

  • Loans may be:
  • - permanent immediate delivery,
    - permanent forward delivery, or
    - construction to permanent financing

  • 1% combined processing and financing fee on any permanent only loan.

  • 2% combined processing financing fee on all construction to permanent loans; lower fees on the portion of such loans in excess of $7.5 million.

  • Virginia Housing pricing assumes a 30-year fully amortizing loan; however, amortization periods up to 35 years will be considered on a case by case basis.

  • A $10,000 application fee must be submitted with the loan application. This is inclusive of the processing fee and is non- refundable.

  • All loans are non-recourse.

  • The application must be submitted through a Virginia Housing-approved mortgage broker.
