Affordable Debt Financing

Affordable Debt Financing

Unparalleled Expertise. Exceptional Execution.

The Walker & Dunlop Affordable Debt team provides specialized financing solutions that meet the needs of affordable housing’s complex structures. Our experienced team has a long history of successfully executing transactions utilizing the full range of debt financing options.

Strong Relationships

Walker & Dunlop has been a top-ranked lender with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and FHA/HUD for over a decade. Our team also maintains close relationships with many banks and life companies, ensuring you have access to the best financing source for your project.

Innovative Approach

Our team is continually exploring new debt financing solutions for affordable multifamily properties. We were the first to offer a loan through Freddie Mac’s Direct Purchase of Tax-Exempt Loans (TEL), and we have developed expertise in Fannie Mae’s MBS for Tax-Exempt Bonds (MTEB) forward and immediate executions, along with many other financing options.

Unrivaled Deal Delivery

From 2020 through 2022, our team has successfully financed 370+ affordable deals with a total volume of more than $5.3B. In 2022, our team financed $9.7B in combined affordable and workforce housing.
