Healthy Housing Rewards™

We offer financial incentives to multifamily borrowers who invest in the health and well-being of the people who live in affordable housing properties.

About Healthy Housing Rewards

Our Healthy Housing Rewards™ initiative provides financial incentives for borrowers who incorporate health-promoting design features and practices or resident services in their newly constructed or rehabilitated multifamily affordable rental properties. Borrowers can follow one of two pathways to qualify for discounted financing.
