UNIAP is the Unified Application for HMFA Multifamily Rental Housing Production Programs. It is the one place to go to apply for:
- Multifamily Financing Programs - (Three  complete sets required at submission)
- Low Income Housing Tax Credits
- Multifamily Preservation Lending Program
- Supported Housing and Special Needs Programs
Projects often require funding from more than one of the programs listed above. The UNIAP consolidates the application process across programs, in order to reduce the number of forms you need to fill out.
Before Applying: Review the program information available on this website and the program guidelines within the UNIAP. Please contact the appropriate program staff, particularly if you are seeking Special Needs financing, for pre-application guidance and instructions.
