The National Housing Trust Fund (HTF) is a federal affordable housing production program that complements 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 and individuals.
VHCB administers National Housing Trust Funds for the State of Vermont. The HTF regulations are modeled on the HOME Program, but there are several key differences, including deeper income targeting, lower rent requirements, and a longer minimum affordability period.
