Home at Last: The Alabama Housing Trust Fund

For tens of thousands of low-income Alabamians, a home of their own is an unaffordable, inaccessible dream. Decades of stagnant earnings, combined with the rising costs of food, medicine, clothing and other essentials, have left safe, affordable housing out of financial reach for many low-income families, seniors, veterans and people with disabilities. The deadly tornadoes that swept across the state in April 2011 displaced thousands more from their homes. A new state law will provide Alabama with greater ability and flexibility to satisfy many of its unmet housing needs.

This fact sheet examines how the Alabama Housing Trust Fund will enhance the state's efforts to promote affordable housing and how the fund could obtain resources with which to meet those needs.
