In 2018, Freddie Mac Multifamily partnered with LIHTC Syndicator, CAHEC, to fund Buckeye Community Hope Foundation with $4.6 million that was applied toward the renovation of Jevue – an existing USDA-RD 515 multifamily property composed of 40 rental units that are affordable to households making no more than 60% of Area Median Income (AMI). Freddie Mac will receive an allocation of low-income housing tax credits as part of the investment.

“The allocation of 9% credits and subsequent equity investment not only allowed us to preserve the physical structures, but also the invaluable rental subsidy provided by USDA Rural Development,” says Ian Maute, Director of Development at Buckeye Community Hope Foundation. “Jevue Club Apartments will remain a high-quality affordable housing option for years to come.”

The rehabilitation project of Jevue Club Apartments consisted of an extensive renovation for five single-story buildings that were originally constructed in 1977, as well as the creation of a new community building.
