The Council for Affordable & Rural Housing (CARH) confirmed that for-profit organizations are not considered “non-federal entities” and thus not subject to Build America, Buy America Act requirements. BABAA requirements only apply to “nonprofit” organizations or instrumentalities of state and local government. Additionally, RD confirmed that a “for-profit” limited partnership with a “nonprofit” entity as its general partner would not be subject to BABAA requirements as long as the ownership structure meets the definition of a “for-profit” entity under BABAA.
