The Mitchell-Lama program provides low-interest loans and tax abatements to owners of housing developments who agree to keep their units affordable for middle-income families. The owner of a development has the option of buying out of the program after 20 years and paying any outstanding mortgage. A buyout removes the development from the jurisdiction of the program and usually allows the owner to increase rent. State law requires the owners to provide 90 days advance notice to the mayor's office, local representatives and any affected tenant associations before a buyout may proceed.
