Nebraska Affordable Housing
Trust Fund (NAHTF)

The Nebraska Affordable Housing Trust Fund is a resource to help increase the supply and improve the quality of affordable housing in Nebraska. The NAHTF provides matching funds for federal resources, and aims to serve the lowest-income individuals for the longest period of time.

What projects are eligible for NAHTF grants? 

NAHTF provides funding for housing projects and capacity building/operating assistance to stimulate the development of safe, decent and affordable housing.

Who is eligible to apply?

Eligible applicants for NAHTF awards include local and governmental subdivisions, public housing authorities, community action agencies, and community-based, neighborhood-based, or reservation-based nonprofit 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4) organizations. Applicants may partner with for-profit developers, builders, lenders, human service providers, and state or federal agencies. The eligible applicant organization must be the applicant for the NAHTF funds.

How do I apply?

If an applicant’s project meets eligibility requirements, a completed application for the appropriate funding category is submitted to the Department of Economic Development by a deadline. Typically, successful applicants complete their project within 24 months of an award.
