Cash Flow Loan Payments:

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, OHFA is offering Cash Flow Repayment Waivers for 2019 repayments. Owners seeking such a waiver must agree not to evict tenants for non-payment of rent until at least December 31, 2020, at each project for which a waiver is requested. Eligible funding sources include: HDAP loans funded by OHTF, NHTF, HOME and FAF; NSP loans; TCAP-GAP loans; and R-TCAP Preservation Loans. Loans with fixed payment schedules are not eligible for a waiver. OHFA established a Project Portfolio Team E-mailbox for all submissions for cash flow loan payments. Please submit the waiver request letter above and the associated required documentation in a separate email for each project for which a waiver is being requested. In the subject line of the email, please state: [project name] and list type of cash flow loan and/or annual audited financial statements for all cash flow loan projects and send to: Portfoliomailbox@ohiohome.org.
