Workforce housing development and investment will continue to be a focus through 2020, and with rising demand for this market segment, investors are getting increasingly creative and strategic about workforce housing financing. As a result, there will not only be an ongoing focus around this market segment, but also—hopefully—strides in the right direction.

“I expect to see an ongoing focus on permanent supportive housing and the “missing middle,” as well as continued discussions about rent restrictions, prioritizing the allocation of subsides and tools outside of Low Income Housing Tax Credit to explore,” Cecile Chalifour, west division manager for community development banking at Chase, tells GlobeSt.com. “We expect a high number of large projects financed through bonds to be bid out this year, which may push equity pricing down, and we still expect competitive capital to be available on the debt side.”
