CDA Developer Resources

Resources for developers seeking CDBG or HOME Partnership funds

Our goal is to provide efficient, affordable housing that respects neighborhood context and enhances quality of living and property values. Use the navigation on the left for more information about our development process.

To accomplish this goal, CDA awards funding to developers in the form of CDBG or HOME Partnership funds--federal dollars that are then used to provide gap financing necessary to rehabilitate or construct housing.

CDA is seeking developers with at least a working knowledge of the construction process, an understanding of real estate finance, familiarity with the role of the architect, and a deep commitment to the production of affordable housing. Outstanding candidates will have a deep understanding of the development process, the role of the developer, a good track record of previously successful projects, and a basic understanding of HUD compliance rules related to CDBG and HOME Partnership funds.
