Flex PACE for Affordable Housing 

Local matching funds available to access Flex PACE for Affordable Housing through the Bank of North Dakota for multi-family housing development.

  1. The Bank of North Dakota's guidelines are:

    $500,000 maximum buy down (grant); leverages about $167,000 local match.

    Requires one unit to be constructed for every $25,000 of Flex PACE Affordable Housing funds provided - Example: $500,000/$25,000 = 20 units.

  2. Local match is a loan, maximum of 10 years.

  3. Principal repaid within 6 months from the date Flex PACE funds are fully expended, not to exceed 10 years.

  4. To meet the legislative intent, Flex PACE benefit must be passed on to tenants. The community's definition of "affordable housing" requires reduced rent by the amount of the Flex PACE interest savings provided by the Bank of North Dakota.
