Funding Our Future
In May 2018, Salt Lake City’s Mayor recommended, and the City Council approved a 0.5 percent increase to the City’s portion of sales tax. The increase will generate millions 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.
As the housing component of the FoF initiative, Salt Lake City’s Housing and Neighborhood Division (HAND) will open a grant application process to the Salt Lake City Community to help address critical housing needs. This funding comes from Salt Lake City’s general fund, which will help fill funding gaps that exist and leave certain populations vulnerable and in need of assistance with housing.
On November 15, 2019 Salt Lake City will begin accepting grant applications for FY2020-2021. All applications submitted must be in alignment with goals and objectives outlined in Salt Lake City’s Housing Plan, Growing SLC. Applications will be open from Friday, November 15, 2019 and must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. Sunday, December 15, 2019. Applications will be accepted via ZoomGrants. Late or incomplete applications will not be accepted. Applications can be found here.
