Rental Development Program

The Rental Development Program (RDP) provides a forgivable loan to sponsors (owners/developers) that want to build affordable rental housing and provide supports to low-income households in communities with a demonstrated need. The loan is forgiven over a period of up to 20 years, depending on the amount of the loan.

Rental Development Program funding is allocated through a Request for Proposals.


For Sponsors (owners/developers):

  • May receive a forgivable loan for up to 70% of the total eligible capital cost of construction.

For Tenants:
