At the same time, we assigned our 'AA+/NR' dual rating to the 2017 series B-2 (index floating rate, federally taxable sustainable neighborhood bonds) multifamily housing revenue bonds. Finally, S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'AA+' long-term rating on all long-term bonds outstanding and various short-term ratings on all short-term and variable-rate bonds outstanding under the resolution. The outlook, where applicable, is stable. "The long-term ratings reflect our view of the extremely high level of government support, NYCHDC excellent strategy and management of the resolution, extremely high loss coverage, the resolution's solid financial strength and strong operating performance, and extremely strong financial policies and practices," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Aulii Limtiaco. The 2017 bonds are designated as Sustainable Neighborhood Bonds, which allows investors to invest directly in bonds that finance socially beneficial projects. The proceeds of the 2017 A-1, A-2, and A-3 bonds will be used to finance six mortgage loans for six developments in Manhattan, the Bronx, and Queens, N.Y. A portion of the proceeds of the 2017 series B bonds will be used to finance three mortgage loans for three developments in Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Queens.

A portion of the proceeds of the 2017 series B bonds will be used to acquire six mortgage loans previously originated by the corporation. The remaining proceeds of the 2017 series B bonds are expected to be deposited in the 2017 series B bond proceeds account, and a portion is expected to be used in the future to finance or refinance mortgage loans. In addition to socially beneficial attributes of the developments receiving subsidized financing, certain are expected to also feature environmental benefits such as Enterprise Green Communities certification or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification.
