The San Antonio Housing Trust (Trust) makes periodic funding available through a competitive Request for Application (RFA) to promote the creation and preservation of affordable housing. Preference will be given to those projects that coincide with the Mayor’s Housing Task Force recommendations and the use the facilities of the San Antonio Housing Trust Public Facility Corporation/Finance Corporation. Proposals may include requests for funds to assist any housing creation or preservation project meeting the eligibility criteria specified within the RFA.
The Trust makes these funds available to provide supplemental financial support to affordable housing developments and programs requiring a limited amount of additional resources for purposes such as increasing the level of affordability of the units or closing a financial gap. It is the intent of the Trust that the limited amount of funds available be used as efficiently and creatively as possible to maximize the creation and preservation of affordable housing.
The San Antonio Housing Trust Finance Corporation (SAHTFC) and the San Antonio Housing Trust Public Facility Corporation (SAHTPFC) were created by the City of San Antonio to provide a tool to develop and finance affordable housing.
