Dear housing stakeholder,

The Idaho Housing and Finance Association (IHFA) anticipates receiving $19.46 million to assist individuals or households who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, and other vulnerable populations, by providing housing, supportive services, and non-congregate shelter, to reduce homelessness and increase housing stability across Idaho. These grant funds will be administered through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME). These funds can be used for production or preservation of affordable housing, supportive services, homeless prevention services, housing counseling, and the purchase and development of non-congregate shelter.

This survey is designed for all residents of Idaho and affordable housing stakeholders.
