A.   Overview, Process and Deadlines

     1.    Overview

           Boulder Housing Partners (“BHP”) seeks a lender to provide a revolving line of
           credit (the “Line”). The Line will be secured by BHP’s home office at 4800
           Broadway. The property is a single-tenant office building containing 14,189
           square feet of gross building area situated on two levels. Approximately 80% is
           built-out as office space with the remainder of the building demised as
           warehouse/workshop space.

           BHP envisions using the Line periodically to take advantage of market
           opportunities to acquire land or rental properties in the City of Boulder. The Line
           would be short term bridge financing which would be repaid from the long term
           financing for the project.

           We are seeking competitive finance terms for the maximum loan to value ratio

B.   Background and Services Requested

     1.    About Boulder Housing Partners

           Boulder Housing Partners is the largest provider of affordable housing for lower
           income households in the city of Boulder.

           Our primary mission is to provide quality, affordable housing, developed and
           managed with respect for the dignity of all involved. We also seek to create a
           sense of community strength and spirit that supports resident efforts to realize
           success in their lives.

                The Housing Authority of the City of Boulder, dba Boulder Housing Partners,
                (“BHP”) was formed by the City Council of the City of Boulder in 1966 under
                provisions of state law to address the need for decent, safe, and sanitary housing
                in Boulder.

                 Boulder Housing Partners owns and manages just under 1,000 units of affordable
                and market rate rental housing and 831 Housing Choice Vouchers in Boulder.
                The 1,000 units are located in 30 properties. We own 337 public housing units,
                122 Section 8 project based units (three properties) and more than 500 non-HUD
                units (218 tax credit units and the balance subsidized with a variety of sources).
                These properties provide a continuum of housing choices to a large cross section
                of households.

                BHP is governed by a nine-member board of Commissioners, all of whom are
                appointed by the mayor and one of whom is a current City Council member.
                Day-to-day operations are supervised by the Executive Director. There are
                approximately 55 staff members in the organization. Boulder Housing Partners
                performs functions including: property management, development of new
                properties, acquisition of new units, resident services, administration of Section 8
                vouchers, and maintenance services. A single property management staff
                manages both the HUD and the non-HUD portfolios. Currently none of our
                property management is contracted privately.

      2.        Services Requested
                BHP is seeking a revolving line of credit collateralized by our home office
                building at 4800 Broadway, Boulder CO. 80304. The line will be used primarily
                for short term gap financing of land or rental property acquisitions in the City of
                Boulder. The short term financing would be repaid from longer term financing on
                the property acquired. The Line will allow BHP to move quickly and take
                advantage of market opportunities. The Line could also be used on an as needed
                basis for short term financing of general operations of BHP and therefore should
                not be restricted as to use.

                The last appraisal of the property was conducted in November 2009 and
                established a value of $2,130,000. We expect to have a new appraisal completed
                as part of this process. We are interested in receiving proposals for the maximum
                LTV and time frame as dictated by your underwriting standards.
