For all LIHTC projects, the application period ends December 20, 2018, at 5 p.m.

The City is particularly interested in receiving applications for rental and for-sale housing development projects from individuals, non-profit, and for-profit organizations.

All applications for FY 2019-2020 HOME and LIHTC projects must be submitted (both hard copy and electronic copy) to:

The primary purpose of the HOME Program is to help communities expand the supply of decent, safe, sanitary, and affordable housing, with primary attention to housing for low income families.  The City became their own Participating Jurisdiction (PJ) in July 2009.  Fifteen percent is set aside as required for specific types of nonprofit organizations known as Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDO's).

The City of Mesa Housing and Community Development Department facilitates an annual application process for the CDBG, ESG, HOME, and Human Services Programs. All non-profit agencies are encouraged to apply. To be eligible for funding, a representative from your non-profit agency must attend one of the program-specific mandatory training sessions offered each fiscal year.

All LIHTC projects, whether or not seeking funding or project support from the City of Mesa must give the City’s Housing and Community Development Office NOTICE OF INTENT TO APPLY FOR LIHTC TAX CREDITS and complete the LIHTC Project Profile Brief for public review/comment, and submission to the City Council for consideration.
