This Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) will provide grants to for-profit or nonprofit developers, localities, or public agencies for Capital Improvement Projects in support of Qualifying Infill Projects (QIPs) or Qualifying Infill Areas (QIAs).

To be eligible for funding, a Capital Improvement Project must be an integral part of, or necessary for the development of either a Qualifying Infill Project or housing designated within a Qualifying Infill Area. Eligible costs include the construction, rehabilitation, demolition, relocation, preservation, and acquisition of infrastructure.

Funds will be allocated through a competitive process, based on the merits of the individual Infill Projects and Areas. Application selection criteria includes project readiness, affordability, density, access to transit, proximity to amenities, leveraged funding commitments, local support, and consistency with regional plans.
