Hunt Capital Partners (HCP) announced today the closing of a $116.6 million national low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) fund, Hunt Capital Partners Fund 37, LP (HCP 37). The fund is investing in 13 family and three senior housing developments across nine states.
HCP 37 will provide equity to finance the rehabilitation and new construction of 16 housing developments, including the conversion of a historic milk factory into affordable housing homes. Upon completion, these 16 developments will contain more than 1,500 homes. An estimated 20 percent of the homes are for families and seniors earning less than 40 percent of the area median income, and an additional 45 percent are for those earning less than 50 percent of the area median income.
“Amidst a changing market environment, Hunt Capital Partners is continuing its commitment to fostering public/private partnerships that lead to the creation and preservation of affordable housing,” said Hunt Capital Partners Managing Director Amy Dickerson. “HCP 37 was underwritten during the COVID-19 pandemic. In a time where the need for affordable housing is more critical than ever, we are grateful to our investor and developer partners for their commitment to affordable housing and for working together remotely to successfully close this fund.”
HCP 37 closed in June 2020 with nine financial institutions participating as investor partners, seven of which were repeat investor partners. Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) investor partners contributed 59 percent of the fund equity.
