Hillsborough County Affordable Housing (HCAH) invested $54 million into the community in 2021 – a crucial tool as prices skyrocket in Tampa’s housing market.
HCAH funding directly impacted 24,300 households looking for affordable opportunities. Of the $54 million, $24.5 million went to housing programs providing down payment assistance for first-time homebuyers, new construction of multifamily housing complexes and single-family homes, and the rehabilitation of housing structures.
The county also invested $7.3 million for facility and infrastructure improvements to enhance communities, which impacted more than 6,300 households.
More than $12.2 million in COVID-19 funding helped cover past-due housing payments for low-income residents.
