Multifamily Housing Development & Insurance

FHA's multifamily loan programs provide insurance that assists both the private and public sectors to finance the construction, purchase and rehabilitation, or the refinancing of rental housing projects, condominiums, and cooperatives.

NAR recognizes the need to maintain the viability of federal multi-family housing programs and to increase the availability and affordability of rental housing. Without federal involvement, such financing can be difficult to find in the private market.  Especially for low-income renters, and in communities experiencing economic distress, such financing is often unavailable in the private market.  We encourage the removal of policy and program disincentives that inhibit owner participation in the development of new rental housing or the preservation of existing safe and affordable rental housing.
