HERE’S THE SCOOP


Since 1975, Wyoming Community Development Authority (WCDA) has been making it easier for people across Wyoming to finance their first home.

We provide low-interest single family mortgages and education to help our customers buy and retain their homes. We also offer special programs to aid in the sustainability of homeownership from our down payment assistance program, to homebuyer education and counseling, to our partnerships with developers and our work with non-profit community organizations, WCDA is the state’s leading resource for housing finance.

In 1975, WCDA was created by state statute, as an instrumentality of the state, for the purpose of raising capital to finance affordable housing. WCDA receives no state funding. WCDA’s largest housing program is the Single-Family Mortgage Purchase Program for first-time homebuyers. In order to fund this program, WCDA raises capital by selling tax-exempt mortgage revenue bonds to investors. Since the interest on the bonds is tax exempt, the investors accept a lower rate of return. The savings is passed through to homebuyers in the form of lower interest rates on mortgages.

In 2012, WCDA began offering additional financing programs for homebuyers by taking advantage of special mortgage purchase programs offered through the federal government for Housing Finance Agencies (HFAs). These programs are called the HFA Preferred Programs and are not limited to first-time homebuyers.

In addition to its single-family programs, WCDA currently administers five major affordable rental housing development programs: the Low-income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) Program, the National Housing Trust Fund (NHTF) Program, the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG), and the HOME Investment Partnerships American Rescue Plan Program (HOME-ARP). Together, these five federal programs have funded more than 5,500 units of affordable rental and homeownership housing across the state, along with dozens of water, sewer, and other public infrastructure projects, and have provided one-time funding to HOME participating jurisdictions, such as WCDA, to reduce homelessness and increase housing stability across the state.
