The Multifamily Mortgage Revenue Bond program uses both taxable and tax-exempt bonds to provide below market-rate loans to non-profit and for-profit developers who set aside a certain percentage of their apartment units for low income families. The program requires that at least 20 percent of the units be set aside for households earning at or below 50 percent of the area median income (AMI).
