KeyBank Provides $18M in Financing to Build Cleveland Homes

KeyBank Community Development Lending and Investment (CDLI) invested $10.2 million of 4% Federal LIHTC Equity and provided a $7.9 million construction loan to finance the development of Henrietta Homes.

The development will consist of 40 lease-to-purchase affordable single-family homes, to be built on vacant land throughout the Hough neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio. Derek Reed and Kory Clark of KeyBank CDLI structured the tax credit equity and debt financing for the transaction. The Famicos Foundation, one of Northeast Ohio’s largest nonprofit community development corporations, is the sponsor for Henrietta Homes.

The development will be partially subsidized, of which eight homes will be supported by a 20-year Section 8 project-based vouchers provided through the Cuyahoga Metro Housing Authority. Additional soft funding sources include $1.6 million from City of Cleveland Housing Trust Funds, a $450,000 Cuyahoga County HOME loan, and a $1.25 million equity bridge loan through the Ohio Housing Finance Agency’s Housing Development Loan program.

Connect Industrial Midwest 2024 will take place on March 5, 2024, at Joe’s Live in Rosemont, Illinois. Click here for more information and to register.
