We are excited to announce that MHEG’s first set of regional funds, MHEG Fund 40, LP and MHEG Community Fund 41, LP, have raised over $140 million in equity bringing MHEG’s total amount of equity capital raised since inception to over $1 billion. This is a huge milestone for MHEG and we know it would not have been possible without all of our partners. “More important than the amount raised is what we’ve been able to do with it,” commented John Wiechmann, President/CEO of MHEG. “That money has helped finance over 10,475 quality affordable residences. We conservatively estimate that at least four families live in a unit during its 15 year compliance period, meaning we’ve been able to and are changing the lives of more than 40,000 families.” Again this would not be possible without our partners, it is your achievement as much as it is ours. Investors in MHEG Fund 40 included: BancFirst, Capitol Federal Savings Bank, Colorado Federal Savings Bank, Farm Bureau, Fidelity Bank, First Bank & Trust, First National Bank of Omaha, Garmin International, GuideOne Mutual Insurance Company, Mutual of Omaha Bank, Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company, Platte Valley Bank, Tri-County Bank and Wells Fargo. Investors in MHEG Community Fund 41 included: Adams Bank & Trust, American Fidelity Assurance Company, Assurity Life Insurance Company, Citizens State Bank, Commerce Bank, Community State Bank, Equity Bank, Farm & Home Insurance Agency, Inc., Farmers and Merchants Investment, Inc.,Girard National Bank, Great Southern Bank, INTRUST Bank, Iowa State Bank, Lincoln Federal Savings Bank, Morgan Federal Bank, North Central Bancorp, Pinnacle Bank, South Central State Bank, UMB Bank and West Bank.

Kansas Governor Attends Ribbon Cutting

Last month, MHEG was honored to participate in the Ribbon Cutting for City View at St. Margaret’s, along with the Kansas Governor Sam Brownback, Kansas Housing Resources Corporation (KHRC), the Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas and Foutch Brothers, LLC. St. Margaret’s is a historic rehab development in Kansas City, Kansas that will provide over 100 units for persons 55+. “Dedicated in 1887, the mission of St. Margaret’s Hospital was to help families in the community, so it’s rewarding to see this iconic building, some 126 years later, providing quality housing for people that need it,” said Brownback. “Congratulations Kansas City! The renovation is beautiful!” For more historic information and pictures of this property, check out our new Property Spotlight section on page 4.

Scott Fitzpatrick

Happy New Year! It is my sincere hope that 2013 was a success for each of you and that 2014 is off to a strong start! Thanks to our outstanding team here at Midwest Housing, we reached new heights this past year. We raised $180 million in new equity commitments and closed investments in 29 different developments (including our first deals in Texas, Arkansas, Missouri and South Dakota), helping finance over 815 units of quality affordable housing. Since 1993, we’ve raised over $1 billion of equity capital and helped finance more than 10,000 units. What a way to celebrate 20 years of Changing Lives for a Better Tomorrow! Of course, we could never reach these benchmarks without the trust and commitment of each of you. Thank you! 2014 will be another exciting year! We look forward to maintaining our strong presence in Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa and Oklahoma and expanding our impact in Texas, Arkansas, Colorado, South Dakota, Minnesota and Missouri. We will spend the year demonstrating our commitment to excellence to our new and existing investor and developer partners in our entire footprint. It will be a chance to hone the skills and refine the knowledge we gained in 2013, providing ever-better service to you. Of course, I can’t end without a plea to stay in contact with your

Congressional delegations. While tax reform may not occur in the near term, we must still continue to educate our elected officials on the value of the LIHTC program, ensuring that it is preserved if and when tax reform takes place. We must also push for legislation to permanently lock the credit rate at 9%. I sincerely thank all of our partners who held groundbreakings, ribbon cuttings and open houses over the past years, especially those that included Members of Congress. I can tell you firsthand that these events do make a difference. More than one lawmaker has committed to help protect the LIHTC as a direct result of your events and outreach! As always, if MHEG can help you plan an open house or ribbon cutting, please let us know. Please also join the A.C.T.I.O.N. coalition (www. rentalhousing.org) to learn what else you can do to protect this vital housing tool. Thank you again to all of our volunteers, investors, developers, general partners, property managers, financing partners and government officials for making 2013 such a great year! We at MHEG look forward to partnering with all of you again in 2014 to change even more lives for a better tomorrow.

January 2014

Reflecting back on 2013, it always seems to be the case that there is so much to do and so little time to do it in. Fourth quarter was very busy, as always tax credits applications were due amidst working towards several closings. We closed deals with Community Housing Initiatives, Conlin Properties, Overland Property Group and Southwest Minnesota Partnership, including our last development in Iowa Fund VII, L.P. Construction was completed on both the Valley View Apartments in Columbus Junction and West Heights Townhomes in Clinton, which held its ribbon cutting on December 17th. Looking ahead to 2014, we are anxiously awaiting the tax credit awards from the Iowa Finance Authority in March and the second round of awards from the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency in April. We are pleased to be working with several repeat developers, as well as some new relationships. The return to the floating credit rate did indeed prove to be a challenge for the financial feasibility for some projects this year. In closing, we would like to extend a big Thank You to Chris Hensley for serving as Iowa’s Interim Executive Vice President this past year. Chris made tremendous contributions in her role and did an outstanding job in working with new investors. THANK YOU Chris!!

Northwest Region Update Cindy Koster

This past year we were fortunate to meet several new friends in South Dakota and Colorado which led to promises of new partnerships. We closed our first deal in South Dakota! Jackson Heights Apartments is located in Aberdeen and the construction is well under way. Once complete, this newly constructed three-story building will provide housing for 41 families. South Dakota Housing Development Authority (SDHDA) celebrated their 40th year anniversary and had a wonderful housing conference this past November, which was attended by five MHEG members. We enjoyed an evening out with new partners, SDHDA staff and new acquaintances (see picture below). Thank you all for spending time with our team. In Nebraska, we closed seven deals with existing partners for a total of 148 units in 2013. Seventy-six units for elderly, ten single family homes and 62 special needs units. As always, it is such a pleasure working with our loyal partners and their associates. Thank you all for allowing MHEG to serve your syndication needs. In the New Year, we look forward to assisting with the applications and providing housing to individuals in Nebraska, South Dakota and Colorado. We plan to close our first project in Colorado in the first quarter. Details of this great project will be in the next issue.

Central Region Update Pat Michaelis 2013 was another strong year for MHEG. MHEG Fund 40, L.P. closed seven properties in the Central Region, funded by many repeat investors and new investors Garmin International and Fidelity Bank. Two properties located in Missouri and five located in Kansas. We thank and appreciate all for their partnership! The Central Region staff again participated in Party with a Purpose during this past holiday season, this event has supported 370 families and 2,278 individuals over the last 15 years. This year we were able to provide for 30 families. MHEG is a proud sponsor of this event, which brings together friends to shop, eat and provide not only presents, but food and basic necessity items such as mattresses, cookware and winter clothing to those in our community. Every year the message comes across to those that participate - it is better to give than to receive. Looking forward to 2014, I want you to be aware of the formation of the Kansas Housing Association (KHA). This is a challenging time for our industry. At the national level, tax reform and balancing the budget are at the forefront. The Kansas Legislature will be looking at Workforce Housing and possibly State Historical Tax Credits. Our industry needs a strong voice. Officers and Directors of KHA for 2014 are: - Brett Johnson (Overland Property Group), President - Mark Cox (Vintage Construction) , Vice President - Jan Peters, (Great Bend Chamber of Commerce), Treasurer - Dave Sandir (Commercial Group), Secretary

In legislative news, Oklahoma will once again see SB804 at the State Capital. SB804 is a bill to create a state affordable housing tax credit. Please follow the progress on Facebook, Oklahomans for Affordable Housing Solutions. Or contact me to have your organization added to the list of supporters and find more ways to help. You can also track the bill on the Oklahoma State Legislature website.

Property Spotlight: City View at St. Margaret’s - Kansas City, Kansas In 1886, a respectable man delirious with typhoid fever was picked up in the streets of Wyandotte (as it was then called) and sent to the city jail. There was no other place in which he could be accommodated. Father Anton Kuhls was touched by the story and advocated the community to build a refuge for the sick and poor. St. Margaret’s Hospital was dedicated on November 19, 1887. It was the first hospital in the city, cost $20,000 and could accommodate 50 patients.

In 1954, the old building was demolished and rebuilt into a sprawling hospital complex. The 1910 front east wing was retained but renovated extensively to match the new building. The Sisters of the Poor of Saint Francis operated the hospital until St. Margaret’s merged with Providence Hospital in 1976. The hospital served and employed many in the community for almost 100 years. St. Joseph Convalescent Home took over the hospital and occupied it until 2001. The building has remained vacant until now. City View at St. Margaret’s will provide the opportunity for this historic building to again service the community by providing affordable rental housing for senior residents. The development consists of 111 newly renovated units made up of studios and one and two-bedroom apartments. Each modern unit contains a refrigerator, range/ oven, dishwasher, microwave, carpet, tile, hardwood, blinds, ceiling fans and a walk-in closet. The building offers an elevator, community room, laundry facility, rooftop garden and on-site management. For leasing information contact the Foutch Brothers at #636-633-1733.

In 1954, the old building was demolished and rebuilt into a sprawling hospital complex. The 1910 front east wing was retained but renovated extensively to match the new building. The Sisters of the Poor of Saint Francis operated the hospital until St. Margaret’s merged with Providence Hospital in 1976. The hospital served and employed many in the community for almost 100 years. St. Joseph Convalescent Home took over the hospital and occupied it until 2001. The building has remained vacant until now. City View at St. Margaret’s will provide the opportunity for this historic building to again service the community by providing affordable rental housing for senior residents. The development consists of 111 newly renovated units made up of studios and one and two-bedroom apartments. Each modern unit contains a refrigerator, range/ oven, dishwasher, microwave, carpet, tile, hardwood, blinds, ceiling fans and a walk-in closet. The building offers an elevator, community room, laundry facility, rooftop garden and on-site management. For leasing information contact the Foutch Brothers at #636-633-1733.

We are excited to announce that MHEG’s first set of regional funds, MHEG Fund 40, LP and MHEG Community Fund 41, LP, have raised over $140 million in equity bringing MHEG’s total amount of equity capital raised since inception to over $1 billion. This is a huge milestone for MHEG and we know it would not have been possible without all of our partners. “More important than the amount raised is what we’ve been able to do with it,” commented John Wiechmann, President/CEO of MHEG. “That money has helped finance over 10,475 quality affordable residences. We conservatively estimate that at least four families live in a unit during its 15 year compliance period, meaning we’ve been able to and are changing the lives of more than 40,000 families.” Again this would not be possible without our partners, it is your achievement as much as it is ours. Investors in MHEG Fund 40 included: BancFirst, Capitol Federal Savings Bank, Colorado Federal Savings Bank, Farm Bureau, Fidelity Bank, First Bank & Trust, First National Bank of Omaha, Garmin International, GuideOne Mutual Insurance Company, Mutual of Omaha Bank, Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company, Platte Valley Bank, Tri-County Bank and Wells Fargo. Investors in MHEG Community Fund 41 included: Adams Bank & Trust, American Fidelity Assurance Company, Assurity Life Insurance Company, Citizens State Bank, Commerce Bank, Community State Bank, Equity Bank, Farm & Home Insurance Agency, Inc., Farmers and Merchants Investment, Inc.,Girard National Bank, Great Southern Bank, INTRUST Bank, Iowa State Bank, Lincoln Federal Savings Bank, Morgan Federal Bank, North Central Bancorp, Pinnacle Bank, South Central State Bank, UMB Bank and West Bank.

Kansas Governor Attends Ribbon Cutting

Last month, MHEG was honored to participate in the Ribbon Cutting for City View at St. Margaret’s, along with the Kansas Governor Sam Brownback, Kansas Housing Resources Corporation (KHRC), the Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas and Foutch Brothers, LLC. St. Margaret’s is a historic rehab development in Kansas City, Kansas that will provide over 100 units for persons 55+. “Dedicated in 1887, the mission of St. Margaret’s Hospital was to help families in the community, so it’s rewarding to see this iconic building, some 126 years later, providing quality housing for people that need it,” said Brownback. “Congratulations Kansas City! The renovation is beautiful!” For more historic information and pictures of this property, check out our new Property Spotlight section on page 4.
