How are the funds spent?
The Affordable Housing Fund can be used for projects and programs that increase availability and access to owner- and renter-occupied housing that is affordable to lower-income community members. Examples of how these funds may be used include:
- Gap financing for the development of new affordable housing
- Acquisition of existing housing or non-residential buildings that will become affordable housing
- Direct assistance for renters
- Down payment assistance for home buyers
An advisory committee of community members provides input and recommendations to staff on the use of Affordable Housing Trust Funds resources.
If you would like to keep informed about the Affordable Housing Trust Fund, please sign up to join the list for interested parties. Information including notifications of meetings, events, committee recruitment, and participation opportunities will be delivered to your inbox.
