Healthy Housing Rewards™

We offer financial incentives to multifamily borrowers who invest in the health and well-being of the people who live in affordable housing properties



Our Healthy Housing Rewards™ initiative provides financial incentives for borrowers who incorporate healthy design features in their newly constructed or rehabilitated multifamily affordable rental properties. Borrowers who include design features that improve air quality, encourage physical activity, and incorporate common space, community gardens, and playgrounds into affordable rental properties may be eligible for below market rate pricing.

Properties must meet or exceed the minimum achievement standards under the Center for Active Design's Healthy Housing Index, and include those where at least 60% of the units are serving tenants who are at or below 60% of the area median income (AMI).

Healthy Housing Rewards demonstrates Fannie Mae's long term commitment to affordable housing that supports a more healthy, stable and sustainable environment for renters, their families and the communities in which they live.
