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 St. Louis Housing Trust Fund has operated for ten years, awarding loans and grants to non-profit developers of affordable housing, as well as non-profits providing services to households at risk of homelessness. Eligible activities include new construction, homeless services, and home repair. Over ten years, $65 million was awarded to partner agencies and produced 2,400 new homes.
Funding for the St. Louis Housing Trust Fund comes from a special use tax on purchases by individuals and corporations based outside of city limits. In FY12, $762,000 was awarded for new construction and rehabilitation; $976,000 towards homelessness prevention services; $658,000 towards transitional housing and $278,000 towards rent and mortgage subsidies, serving 200,000 households. The Affordable Housing Commission approved grants and development applications for a total of $5,017,908 for FY15.
