Local Housing Trust Fund
In 2021, the City of Fresno passed Resolution 2021-201, establishing a Local Housing Trust Fund (LHTF) to support access to decent, safe, and affordable housing within the city. The LHTF can provide funding to a variety of community-supported housing programs and activities according to adopted Program Guidelines.

The Housing and Community development Division released LHTF NOFA on April 17, 2023 and received multiple applications.
Among the excellent potential projects, we selected the applications that received the most points for the program guidelines and meeting community needs. Now we proudly announce the LHTF NOFA awardee.
