The Affordable Housing Managed Pipeline creates affordable rental housing for low and very low-income households by making long-term loans for new construction or for the rehabilitation of existing residential structures through an open competitive Call For Projects process.

Background

In response to the critical shortage of affordable housing in Los Angeles, the Mayor and City Council, through the City’s budget process created the Affordable Housing Trust Fund in June 2000.  Seed funding of $5 million was provided, which was immediately committed by the Los Angeles Housing Department (LAHD) to fund proposed housing developments that were on the waiting list from the NOFA for that year. In the following fiscal year, $10.5 million was budgeted for the Affordable Housing Trust Fund (Fiscal Year 2001-2002).  In January 2002, Mayor Hahn announced his $100 million proposal for the Affordable Housing Trust Fund, and a multi-year funding plan based on the Mayor’s proposed plan was approved.

In June 2003, with the approval of the Mayor and City Council, the LAHD established the Affordable Housing Managed Pipeline Program (AHMP).  The AHMP was created to provide for the ability to leverage and attract the investment dollars of other public and private entities for the development of affordable housing within the City.  In addition, on January 23, 2013, the City of Los Angeles was designated by California Tax Credit Allocation Committee (CTCAC) as the 11th region to have its own geographic allocation of nine percent (9%) LIHTC.

AHMP Process and Funding Awards

LAHD continues to manage and ensure that affordable housing developments in the Managed Pipeline are in alignment with prospective federal, state, and/ or local multifamily housing development funding programs and sources and scheduled diverse and competitive application cycles.  This Collaborative forward-thinking and measured approach has proven successful in securing funding in a way that balances the Managed Pipeline with funding availability, leaving no project left without permanent funding.

One to two funding rounds are held each calendar year, with projects competing for funds that are used to leverage Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) or funding from other State or Federal housing programs.  Currently, the Managed Pipeline funds are comprised of various funding sources, including but not limited to Federal HOME funds, assets and funds of former Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), City general funds, and Linkage Fee funds.
