The Ohio Housing Finance Agency (OHFA) has revamped their program offices to include a Development Division, a Compliance Division and a Training & Technical Assistance Division. Learn more about each division below.
Office of Single Family Housing
As the leader in developing innovative, effective programs that strengthen Ohio communities and address affordable housing needs throughout the state, one of OHFA's goals is to provide financial support and tax incentives to developers committed to developing low- to moderate-income homes for Ohioans.
Created in the FY 2024-2025 State Budget bill, the new Single-Family Housing Tax Credit program provides $50 million a year in ten-year tax credits, for four years, to incentivize the construction of new single-family homes for Ohio's growing workforce.
