Housing Development Fund (HDF)


The purpose of the Housing Development Fund (HDF) is to provide affordable, decent, safe and sanitary housing to responsible very low-, low- and moderate- income households.

This program is designed to provide financing for developers and homeowners through sponsoring agencies. Types of developments that will be considered include, but are not limited to, the acquisition and/or rehabilitation of existing housing, the adaptive reuse of nonresidential buildings, and new construction. Both rental and for-sale housing will be considered.

Because the HDF has limited funds, it is the applicant's responsibility to provide DSHA with evidence that other potential sources of funding have been explored or exhausted.
