The Agency encourages applications for multifamily developments and will provide volume cap to as many qualified properties as are reasonably feasible, subject to the continued availability of volume cap for these purposes. At this time priority shall be given to Superstorm Sandy projects receiving FRM and/or SSNHF, non-Sandy projects scheduled to receive an Agency financing commitment in 2015, and Agency portfolio workouts.
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 - (Two  complete sets required at submission)
- Multifamily Preservation Lending Program

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.
