How Can You Help?
The National Low Income Housing Coalition is providing this data as a public service. NLIHC will continue to update the database. The accuracy of the data is based on information provided by the programs' administrators and user submissions.
The State Housing Fund (SHF) was established in 1988 to provide assistance in meeting the needs of low income families through development of affordable permanent and transitional rental housing units.
During FY12, five projects were funded through the program, with a total of 312 units. Two million dollars went to vouchers for people with serious mental illness through a five-year pilot program in its fourth year. These vouchers are meant to be temporary in nature and serve formerly homeless people until they can obtain a federal housing choice voucher. However, in the absence of new federal vouchers, they have become more permanent in nature. These vouchers serve about 200 people across the state.
The Housing Trust Fund is state-funded through an allocation of unclaimed property deposits, interest on unexpended funds, loan repayments, and recaptured funds. The Trust Fund receives approximately $2.5 million annually.
