Hunt Capital Partners Safeguards Affordable Housing by Waiving Qualified Contract Option for Alabama Development

DOTHAN, Alab., June 18, 2024 – Hunt Capital Partners (HCP) announced steps to preserve affordable housing for low-income families in Dothan, Alabama. In a coordinated move, HCP has secured permission from the Alabama Housing Finance Authority (AHFA) to amend the Declaration of Land Use Restriction Agreement (LURA) for Beverlye Crossings and terminate the Qualified Contract option, representing HCP’s commitment to affordable housing.

Located at 210 Crossing Lane, Dothan, Alabama, Beverlye Crossings, a 104-unit garden-style apartment complex, offers a mix of two- and three-bedroom homes reserved for renter households who earn up to 60% of the Area Median Income (AMI). Through this latest initiative, HCP not only underscores its dedication to preserving quality affordable housing solutions but also guarantees the development’s continued affordability through the end of its Extended Use Period in 2045.

HCP voluntarily waived the right to terminate the property’s Extended Use Period through a Qualified Contract, as outlined in Section 42 of the Internal Revenue Code. The provision would have allowed the property owner a path to remove rent restrictions and convert the property to market rate. By removing the Qualified Contract provision, HCP ensures that, regardless of future ownership, the development will remain affordable, safeguarding the community’s access to quality, low-rent housing solutions.

“This forward-thinking decision reflects HCP’s deeply rooted mission to protect the availability of affordable housing, which is critically needed nationwide,” said HCP President Jeff Weiss. “By choosing to amend the LURA, HCP reaffirms its pledge to support the communities we serve through the preservation of affordable housing.”

Environmental Social and Corporate Governance (“ESG”) Investing

Hunt Capital Partners recognizes that its institutional investors are seeking to increase the social value of their investments to help further their ESG initiatives. An investment in affordable housing not only improves the living conditions of its residents, but it also helps to remove obstacles that stand in the way of creating a healthy, safe and stable home environment for low-income families and seniors. When families spend less on housing related expenses, they have more resources available for other essentials such as food and clothing, or even extracurricular activities and educational programs. One of the most significant benefits to providing quality affordable housing is an increase in an individual’s physical and mental health. Hunt Capital Partners’ affordable housing investments create a lasting effect on the people and communities they serve for generations to come.
