Under HPD's Mixed Income Program: Mix and Match, sponsors purchase City-owned or privately owned land or vacant buildings and construct multifamily buildings in order to create affordable rental housing units with a range of affordability in which at least half of the units are affordable to low income households earning up to 60 percent of the Area Median Income (“AMI”) and the remaining units are affordable to other low income households. Construction and permanent financing is provided through loans from private institutional lenders and from public sources including HPD, the New York City Housing Development Corporation, the State of New York, and the federal government.
