Housing Affordability Trust
For over a decade, a joint venture of the Jefferson County Housing Authority and Navigate Affordable Housing Partners has been acting as HUD’s Section 8 Performance Based Contract Administrator in Alabama, Mississippi, Connecticut and Virginia. Profits from this venture have been used to support various affordable housing projects and programs throughout these 4 states. In order to utilize these monies in the most effective manner possible, the Boards of both the joint venture partners worked together to create the Housing Affordability Trust. The goal of the Trust was to create an on-going entity that would make funds available annually to qualified entities that are providing affordable housing and related services.
On behalf of the Advisory Board and Trustee for the Housing Affordability Trust, we are pleased to announce that applications are being taken for the funds available this year for affordable housing projects and programs. This link https://www.navigatehousing.com/hat-application-2016/ will take you to the application and all pertinent information on the Navigate Affordable Housing Partners website. Monies available this year are as follows: $3.5 million for affordable housing rehabilitation and construction and $1.3 million for affordable housing related programs. This is an on-line application process and the deadline is Thursday, December 15th, 2016 by 4:30 pm .
