In December 2006, the Crozet Crossings Housing Trust Fund trustees authorized a request for proposals to use available funding for eligible affordable housing projects. Two applications were received. One application from Habitat for Humanity was recommended by staff for funding and approved by the trustees. The request was for $60,000.00, $30,000.00 for each of two houses to be built in the County for very low income households with disabled family members living in substandard conditions. Habitat’s request of $60,000.00 is to help fill a $140,000.00 financing gap between the property value and other resources received to date. The funding will be secured by the property through a mutually-agreed upon method which will include an equity-sharing provision. Funds will be granted to Habitat through a grant agreement that specifies the details of security and repayment.
