Housing Trust Fund Rental Assistance

For rental assistance funding, there are three options: tenant-based, sponsor-based, and project-based rental assistance. Housing Trust Fund rental assistance is intended to be temporary in nature and to provide assistance through an Administrator to an individual household or through the owner of an Agency-financed development approved to receive project-based rental assistance.
