HUDSON HOUSING FUND

Housing trust funds are funds of money established by a government to receive ongoing dedicated public funding to preserve and increase housing affordability. Housing trust funds commit public revenue to affordable housing, separate from annual budget allocations, and can receive philanthropic or grant revenue. The Common Council passed a resolution in September, 2020 to create a housing trust fund for the City of Hudson. This trust fund, called the Hudson Housing Fund, will receive seed funds from the City's Anti-Displacement Grant in Spring 2022. During Winter 2021-2022, the City is conducting public engagement to learn how residents at risk of displacement would like this fund to be used and governed.
