Housing Trust Fund

The Housing Trust Fund  (HTF) is a new affordable housing production program that will complement existing federal, state and local efforts to increase and preserve the supply of decent, safe, and sanitary affordable housing for extremely low- and very low-income households, including homeless families. The HTF was established under Title I of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008, Section 1131. HTF funds may be used for the production or preservation of affordable housing through the acquisition, new construction, reconstruction, and/or rehabilitation of non-luxury housing with suitable amenities. On January 30, 2015, HUD published an Interim Rule which provides the guidelines for States to implement the HTF.

As a result, IHCDA is tasked with using the HTF to increase the supply of decent, safe and sanitary housing for persons at or below 30% of the Area Medium Income. HTF regulations may be found in 24 CFR 91 and 93.
