FY 2020 Project Funding Scoring Guidance
The FY 2020 NOFA for County Loan Funds Scoring Guidance was used to guide the review and evaluation of loan requests and form the basis for the FY 2020 pipeline funding recommendations to the County Manager and County Board. The Geographic Distribution Map, which is used to score the Geographic Distribution criteria, can be found here.
Selection is not a commitment of loan funds. Selected applicants will move forward with financing negotiations, including negotiations on the requested loan amount, and public review process. A County Board hearing would be scheduled upon successful completion of this process. Any commitment of County loan funds is contingent upon County Board approval.
Out-of-cycle applications will be considered for time-sensitive 3rd party acquisitions on a case-by-case basis. “Time-sensitive 3rd party acquisition” means the development is currently listed on the open market or will be listed on the open market in the immediate future. If the applicant is applying to be considered out-of-cycle please e-mail a letter to Melissa Danowski at email@example.com with information about the project (location, units, price) and documentation of time-sensitivity (listing or letter from owner). Describe why an in-cycle application would preclude the ability to purchase. DO NOT fill out ZoomGrants application unless advised by Arlington County staff to do so.
