Spring 2019 Affordable Housing Notice of Funding Availability Housing Applications Overview and Appendices

Snohomish County is making available HOME Investment Partnership funds and 1/10 of 1% Sales Tax Chemical Dependency and Mental Health (CDMH) funds for affordable housing.  The Overview provides an overall description of the Spring 2019 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for HOME and CDMH funds, and includes descriptions of the funding amounts available, the funding sources, the applicable policies (see Appendices below), application instructions, and the funding review processes and schedule.

Application Information

The Spring 2019 NOFA Application has separate sections to better evaluate the proposal and funding request.  More information on each type of application may be found in the relevant sections listed below.  Applications are due Friday, May 31, 2019 by 4:00 pm.

Snohomish County, along with other jurisdictions, is using the Combined Funders Application, which is a common application for multi-unit rental housing and homeownership development projects. In addition to the appropriate Combined Funders Application (which includes both MS Word narrative and MS Excel form sections), the appropriate Snohomish County Addendum(s) must be submitted for each proposed project, as listed in the sections below.

Technical Assistance and Application Workshop

 An application workshop was held on Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm at Snohomish County's Robert J. Drewel Building (Administration Building East), 6th floor, Conference Room 6A02, 3000 Rockefeller Avenue, Everett WA 98201.


**UPDATE 05/14/2019**

HUD published the 2019 Income and Rent limits on April 24, 2019. You may use these updated limits in place of the “HUD Maximum Income and Rent Limits” found on the bottom half of page 1 in Appendix A of the NOFA materials. These Income and Rent limits are outlined in the PDF below and may be used for non-HOME units, including CDMH Sales Tax units. The County will accept either the 2018 or 2019 Limits in your application.  The direct link for these updated limits is: https://www.huduser.gov/portal/datasets/il.html. (Please note that the “HOME Maximum Income and Rent Limits”, found on the upper half of page 1 in Appendix A, have not yet been updated for 2019, so please continue to use the 2018 HOME limits shown in Appendix A until the HOME limits are updated by HUD.)

**UPDATE 04/11/2019**

The 2019 narrative section of the Combined Funders application (MS Word), which was unavailable when the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) was posted, is now available.  In addition, the 2019 form section of the Combined Funders Application (MS Excel), which was posted with the Notice of Fund Availability on April 8, 2019, has been updated as of April 11, 2019.  If you have downloaded the original version, please replace it with this updated 2019 form section of the Combined Funders Application.  These 2019 application changes only affect the Capital Multi-Unit Rental Housing Projects and the Shelter Capital Projects.
