Today the City of Memphis Division of Housing and Community Development (HCD) announced the opening of the competitive grant program for the Memphis Affordable Housing Trust Fund (MAHFT).

This fund will advance the Memphis 3.0 Comprehensive Plan to help provide affordable housing through grants and loans for new construction and rehab of multifamily homes, as well as minor home repair and rehabilitation of single family homes for those who qualify. One million dollars is available to be awarded.

Eligible developers, Community Development Corporations (CDCs), and Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs) focused on addressing the housing needs of households that earn up to 80 percent (80%) of Area Median Income (AMI) are invited to apply. Funds awarded during the current grant round must be used for Single-Family Rehab or Single-Family Home Repair. Private individuals, such as homeowners or interested residents, are NOT permitted to receive direct grants or loans from the MAHTF. Homeowners are encouraged to seek assistance through nonprofits when they are awarded MAHTF funds.
