Request for Proposals (RFPs) and Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) — Rental Subsidy Program

Open Invitation

The Vancouver Housing Authority (VHA) is seeking proposals from developers and/or owners of multifamily rental properties to participate in a locally-created rental subsidy program. The local program will “buy-down” rents at a market rate apartment property (not subsidized or receiving tax credits) so that the units within the complex that are designated by the owner will become affordable for, and only available to, households at or below 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI). If selected, an owner would receive funds from the VHA to offset the amount the project would require to reduce apartment rents to reach the affordable level.

The RFP/NOFA is available for download below, or at the VHA Reception Desk, 2500 Main Street, Vancouver, WA 98660.
