MORTGAGE CREDIT CERTIFICATE


The MCC Program is a first-time homebuyer tax credit program.

MCC holders may use this credit over the life of the qualifying loan, provided the MCC holder continues to qualify for the MCC. The actual value of an MCC and the associated tax credit will depend on the individual MCC holder’s tax situation.

WYOMING REHABILITATION & ACQUISITION PROGRAM


The Wyoming Rehabilitation and Acquisition Program (WRAP) is funded federally under the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008, more commonly known as the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) and under Title II (the Home Investment Partnerships Act) of the National Affordable Housing Act of 1990, more commonly known as the HOME Program. The NSP program and the HOME Program are subject to the same federal requirements related to fair housing, nondiscrimination, labor standards, and the environment (including lead-based paint). The national objective of the NSP funds is to address the problem of abandoned and foreclosed homes.

The purpose of the WRAP program is to purchase qualified properties, rehabilitate the properties, and then sell the properties to qualified, income eligible households. The WRAP program will utilize existing housing stock which will be brought up to pre-defined housing quality standards. Housing that is determined to be unsafe and blighted and exceeds cost reasonableness to bring the property up to habitable standards may be demolished and a new housing unit constructed in its place.

WHAT IS NSP?

HUD-approved NSP Substantial Amendment

NSP Substantial Amendment June 2017 Notice

HUD’s Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) provides emergency assistance to state and local governments to acquire and redevelop foreclosed properties that might otherwise become sources of abandonment and blight within their communities. The Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) provides grants to every state and certain local communities to purchase foreclosed or abandoned homes and to rehabilitate, resell, or redevelop these homes in order to stabilize neighborhoods and stem the decline of house values of neighboring homes.

The Wyoming Community Development Authority no longer has NSP funds available for allocation. Quarterly reports containing program financial information can be found under the Quarterly Reporting link to the left.
