Greystone Closes $79.2M in HUD Financing for Affordable Housing Portfolio in North Carolina
GREENSBORO, N.C. — Greystone Affordable Development, an affiliate of Greystone & Co. Inc., has closed $79.2 million in financing for a nine-property, 645-unit affordable housing portfolio in Greensboro. The financing was arranged through the HUD Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program on behalf of the Greensboro Housing Authority. HUD’s RAD program provides funding for housing authorities to convert public housing properties to a Section 8 platform using public and private debt and equity, ensuring that the portfolio will remain permanently affordable to low-income households. The Greensboro Housing Authority will renovate the properties, constructed between 1959 and 1996, over the next year. The financing package included tax-exempt bonds, Low Income Housing Tax Credit equity from Boston Financial Investment Management and Fannie Mae loans provided by PGIM Real Estate Finance. Greystone has preserved over 10,000 affordable housing units as both financial advisor and developer.
