According to the draft QAP, applicants will be required to submit an Intent to Submit a Tax Credit Application - Fact Sheet and Development Synopsis on or before July 7, 2017. The entire application package is due to PHFA by 3:00 p.m. on September 8, 2017.It appears that the requirements for the 2017/2018 application will be similar to the application requirements for the 2016 application with a couple of significant proposed changes. One proposed change is the increase of the developer's fee being calculated at 12% of replacement costs less all costs of acquisition rather than the previous 10% of replacement costs less all costs of acquisition. Another proposed change is the awarding of points for Section 811 participation.
