Illinois Housing Authority Multifamily Preliminary Project Assessment Form

The current version of the Multifamily Preliminary Project Assessment (the “PPA Workbook”) is to be used when applying for an Illinois Housing Development Authority (“IHDA”) administered program that requires a preliminary project assessment and consists of a single Microsoft Excel file.  The PPA Workbook includes a PPA Checklist and the PPA Form.  Only the current version will be accepted.

A complete Preliminary Project Assessment package (the “PPA”) is comprised of a completed PPA Workbook along with the required documents and exhibits.  Incomplete PPA’s will not be considered.

Once you have received your completed excel form from Lihtec Funding it will be your responsibility to submit all of the required materials to the Illinois Housing Development Authority per the instructions.

A Preliminary Project Assessment (PPA) must describe a unique Project.  Sponsors considering multiple Projects or multiple Project scenarios must submit separate PPA’s.
