Arkansas Housing Trust Fund
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.
Arkansas's Housing Trust Fund was established in 2009, but did not receive funding until 2013. The Trust Fund provides grants and loans for new construction, rehabilitation, rental assistance, land acquisition, predevelopment costs, infrastructure costs, down payment assistance, housing counseling, and technical assistance.
In 2013, the Arkansas General Assembly allocated $500,000 to the Trust Fund, the first allocation of state funding. There funds were awarded by the Arkansas Development Finance Authority (“ADFA”) Board in 2015. Additionally in 2015, a bill was filed for recapitalization of the Trust Fund, the bill was approved, but no appropriation were made. Currently, there are no funds in the Trust Fund. Efforts are underway to make a major request for additional Trust Fund appropriations in the 2017 Legislative Session.
