The Bonds will be an issue of "exempt facility bonds" issued to finance a "qualified residential rental project" as defined in Section 142(a)(7) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code").

The Issuer will issue the Bonds under one or more Trust Indentures (the "Indenture") between the Issuer and U.S. Bank National Association (the "Trustee") and will use the proceeds of the Bonds to provide funds to a financial institution or institutions (the "Lender") to fund a mortgage loan or loans (the "Mortgage Loan") to the Company, to finance the acquisition, rehabilitation, furnishing and equipping of Palmetto Terrace Apartments, a 112-unit affordable rental housing community located at 3021 Howell Court, Columbia, South Carolina 29203 in Richland County, South Carolina, and the substantial rehabilitation, furnishing and equipping thereof (the "Project"); to be owned by the Company.

The Bonds will not constitute an indebtedness of the Issuer, the State of South Carolina, or any political subdivision thereof within the meaning of any South Carolina constitutional provision or statutory limitation nor give rise to a pecuniary liability of the Issuer, the State of South Carolina, or any political subdivision thereof. The Bonds will not constitute a charge against the general credit or taxing powers of the Issuer, the State of South Carolina, or any political subdivision thereof.
