Affordable Housing Trust Fund

2007 Request for Proposals
Franklin County Affordable Housing Trust Fund (FCAHTF) Oversight Committee is seeking proposals that address local, affordable housing priorities serving persons or households considered to be extremely low and very low-income. Approximately $367,000.00 in revenues, generated through county document recording surcharge fees, is being made available for 2007 affordable housing grants and/or low-interest loans.

Proposals will be received and funds used only for the following types of projects:
Category#1: Acquisition, construction, or rehabilitation of housing projects or units within housing projects that are affordable to persons with incomes at or below 50% of the area median income (AMI). All eligible applications will be considered, however proposals for new construction will not be considered if the vacancy rate in the county is greater than 10%. Special consideration will be given for applications addressing farm worker housing.
Category #2: Operation and maintenance assistance through either grants or loans for rental projects developed using (state) housing trust funds. Proposed rental housing projects must provide permanent housing for persons or households considered very low-income (50% or less of AMI), that requires a revenue supplement to cover ongoing operation expenses.


Category # 3: Rent assistance (short term), including gap rental assistance and assistance with security deposits for permanent rental housing projects or units within housing projects that are affordable to persons or households with income considered to be very low-income (50% or less of AMI). Rent assistance must be administered by a local public housing authority or another local organization that has an existing rental assistance voucher program consistent with HUD Section 8 Rental Assistance Voucher program.
Category #4: Operating costs for emergency shelters and licensed overnight youth shelters.

Eligible applicants include: Individuals, local governments, non-profit (including faith-based), for-profit agencies, and public housing authority. Faith-based organizations and churches may not restrict participation based on required religious affiliation or activities.
The FCAHTF Oversight Committee will not accept applications from individuals for single-family homeowner repair or rental assistance. Such activities must be sponsored by an organization willing to complete homeowner repairs and rental assistance on a larger scale.
Applicants may submit more than one application. However, since funding is limited, please prioritize applications in the order of importance. The FCAHTF Oversight Committee will consider applications requesting both grants and loans. Special consideration will be given to applications with partial or full loan requests. Timelines for any proposed project may exceed the funding year, however funding is limited to amount allocated in this cycle.
