Notice of Additional Information Requested of Some Applicants for AHF 12.0 NOFA

This is a notice that additional information is requested from applicants for the AHF 12.0 NOFA who intend to apply for tax credits and/or bonds in 2024.

If this applies to your project, we ask that your response to the AHF 12.0 NOFA include the following additional information:

  • If you will apply for the first round of 4% tax credits/bonds on April 23rd, please include a final copy of Attachment 40 of your application, including the tiebreaker scoring page.
  • If you will apply for the 2024 second round of 9% tax credits or 4% tax credits and bonds, please include the following:
    • A completed copy of the points and tiebreaker pages of Attachment 40 or the 9% E-Application.
    • The project’s Housing Type/Set-aside Selections

This request for additional information does not change the deadline to apply, nor does it excuse an incomplete application.

Please email any questions about this request for additional information to  



As provided on page 3 of the AHF 12.0 NOFA,  an additional funding source has been made available through the AHF 12.0 NOFA.  Applicants must still apply by the original deadline of April 12, 2024 at 4 pm and must meet all other requirements of the AHF 12.0 NOFA.

The additional funding source is $864,000 to be awarded to projects that include some rental units targeted to “Youth Transitioning Out of Foster Care”, which is defined on page 34 of the NOFA as “People between the ages of 18 and 24 who are in transition from state custody or foster care and are at risk of homelessness.”

The Referral Source for these units is Children and Family Services (CFS) division of the San Mateo County Human Services Agency. Although some of these referrals may have an income stipend or other form of financial assistance, these referrals are not guaranteed to be accompanied by a tenant-based rental subsidy, either Family Unification Program or any other rental subsidy source.   These units should target households with incomes up to 30% of Area Median Income. 

Please note that these units will qualify as “Supportive Housing” units as defined on page 33 of the NOFA and will count towards the 5% homelessness Threshold Requirement.  An application for this funding source must provide a Supportive Services Plan and budget that is appropriate for this special needs population and the applicant will later be required to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding with CFS to establish referral protocols and services. 

These units are subject to Measure K restrictions as described in Appendix B of the NOFA.
