Funding Our Future
In May 2018, Salt Lake City’s City Council approved a .5 percent increase to the City’s portion of sales tax. This increase will generate millions of dollars a year in ongoing funding; this initiative is called Funding Our Future (FoF). The City identified four areas of critical need, with affordable housing being one of them. With the implementation of FoF, City Council has appropriated over $1.7 million dollars for Salt Lake City’s Housing and Neighborhood Development (HAND) to help address critical housing needs.
On September 13, 2019 Salt Lake City will begin accepting 2019-2020 grant applications for programs in alignment with Salt Lake City’s housing plan Growing SLC. Applications must be submitted via ZoomGrants by 11:59 p.m. Sunday, September 29, 2019.
