Advantage Capital Finances Affordable Housing Development in Rural Virginia

Mecklenburg Manor will offer safe, quality homes for families in South Hill, Va.

ST. LOUIS, December 05, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Advantage Capital, a leading impact investment firm that invests in expanding access to affordable homes across the country, today announced the financial closing of one of the first investments under the Virginia Housing Opportunity Tax Credit (HOTC) program, which is designed to spur stable housing availability in the state as the cost of living continues to climb across the country.

"The legislation to increase access to affordable homes for Virginians is an incredibly important and impactful policy," said Delegate Tommy Wright, Virginia House of Delegates. "I am appreciative for my colleagues, investors, developers and all involved for their commitment to addressing rising rents in our communities."

Advantage Capital, which supported and actively advocated for the HOTC program alongside other organizations and entities, is eager to help housing developers deliver on the ambitious and essential projects that can now be pursued due to the state low-income housing tax credit program.

"We have invested in affordable housing developments across the country, supporting more than 9,000 housing units for low-income families and are particularly excited about making our first investment in Virginia under the HOTC program," said William Fiederlein, Vice President at Advantage Capital and Business Development lead in Virginia. "Work is well underway to do what we do best – funnel flexible investment capital to the people and places that need it most."

Partnering with Gateway Development Associates and NFP Affordable Housing Corp. to develop the project, Advantage Capital will help finance the rehabilitation of Mecklenburg Manor, a 51-unit property in South Hill, Virginia, a rural town 80 miles south of Richmond. The development will modernize one-, two- and three-bedroom units within seven buildings to households earning between 40- and 60-percent of the area median income (AMI).

Advantage Capital participates in state and federal tax credit programs to help finance housing developments and increase access to safe, high-quality, and affordable homes for low-income families, veterans, public service workers, and other vulnerable populations in America.
