How does the Housing Trust Fund operate?
The Housing Trust Fund makes funds available for affordable housing projects through a competitive application process.
Who gets housing?
Housing Trust Fund dollars support a wide range of projects serving a diverse array of low-income populations. Projects can serve people with incomes up to 80% of Area Median Income, but the majority of projects funded to date serve households with special needs or incomes below 30% of Area Median Income, including homeless families, seniors, farmworkers, and people with developmental disabilities. Special needs projects coordinate with state and local service providers, to ensure clients receive appropriate housing and services.
