RFP 2019-03 released on April 22, 2019 specifically states the following:

 

The CRA intends to make subsidies available to assist the homebuyer with the cost to purchase the home.  After the RFP award, the CRA will work with the successful proposer to determine the subsidy amount.

 

The subsidy will allow homebuyers gap financing by providing down payment assistance based on financial eligibility.  The CRA’s subsidy will be secured by a second mortgage and a promissory note.  The process will involve the Delray Beach CLT obtaining various documentation from the homebuyer including documentation from the first mortgage lender and the homebuyer regarding the financing availability.  Upon verification of the documentation, the Delray Beach CLT will submit a request to the CRA for a subsidy amount for the gap financing for the homebuyer.  One of the key conditions to the subsidy is that upon the sale, transfer, conveyance or alienation of any part or all of the home within twenty-five (25) years of the date of the promissory note by the homebuyer, full repayment of the CRA subsidy plus accrued interests shall become immediately due and payable to the CRA.  If the home is sold after expiration of the twenty-five (25) year term, the restriction is removed.  Staff will work with the CRA Attorney to secure the necessary documents to ensure compliance with all program requirements prior to closing.

 

As not to delay closing of the ten (10) single family homes, Staff is requesting authorization for the CRA Executive Director to administratively approve and execute all documents for second mortgage program up to $85,000 to each buyer, and not to exceed $850,000 total for ten (10) single family homes within the Corey Jones Isle Workforce Housing Development.
