Land Acquisition Program (LAP)

The Land Acquisition Program assists eligible nonprofit organizations in Washington state to purchase land suited for either multifamily or single family affordable housing development.

LAP is a revolving loan program intended to assist with site acquisition for eventual use as affordable housing; LAP projects are expected to begin construction in year 2–6 and place in service before year 8. LAP is not a short-term acquisition bridge financing program. Nonprofit borrowers must demonstrate sound experience and strong development capacity.
