Finding suitable sites for affordable housing development can be quite the challenge. States offering competitive award programs have lengthy site scoring requirements and it’s difficult to efficiently identify and evaluate opportunities. There is intense competition for quality sites and the ever changing QAP programs make it difficult to adjust focus year to year. NLR has created a unique solution for developers.
Many QAP requirements involve a “decay” scoring system where less points are awarded the further away from key amenities. Proprietary GIS technology was developed to automate the scoring process for thousands of sites at a time, while also screening for numerous fatal development flaws (i.e. zoning, wetlands). This tool pre-qualifies potential sites, then our seasoned acquisition team takes over to contact owners and secure contracts. This platform can pivot quickly to address new QAP changes by adjusting the technology followed by a comprehensive outbound owner contact campaign – providing the most competitive site acquisition program available.
Since 2014 NLR has created solutions for Florida, Georgia, North & South Carolina, and Virginia. View a case study
