Since 2018, Salt Lake City has been addressing resident’s needs in the community with the Funding our Future (FoF) housing program. This program accepts applications annually from local nonprofits to receive grant funding designed to help with a range of affordable housing needs in the community. Grant funding is provided to these organizations in one of the following six general service categories:
- Mortgage Assistance
These programs provide mortgage assistance to low- to moderate-income homeowners facing a financial crisis and help prevent vulnerable residents from slipping into homelessness.
- Incentivized Rent Assistance
These programs provide rental assistance for low- to moderate-income renters facing a financial crisis and help prevent vulnerable residents from slipping into homelessness.
- Service Models for the Most Vulnerable
These programs are rental assistance and stabilization aid specifically targeted towards members of vulnerable populations.
- Landlord Tenant Mediation
Also known as “Build a More Equitable City,” these programs help households stay in their rental units, avoid eviction, and decrease discrimination in housing.
- Landlord Insurance Assurance
Also known as “Expanded Housing Opportunity Program,” these programs mitigate potential risks for landlords related to renting to low- to moderate-income individuals/households and provide assistance to eviction at-risk households.
- Down Payment Assistance
Also known as “Marketing Home Ownership Programs,” these programs will provide services associated with the purchase of a home for low- to moderate-income level home buyers.
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 for FY2022-2023 funding from Wednesday, September 28 to 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, November 9, 2022. Late or incomplete applications will be filed unopened and kept confidential.
