The San Luis Obispo County Housing Trust Fund announced it has once again been awarded a community development grant from Bank of America to continue helping make quality affordable housing accessible for working families on the Central Coast.

“Bank of America has always been one of the Housing Trust Fund’s strongest and most generous supporters,” said Jerry Rioux, the Housing Trust Fund’s executive director. “The bank has contributed well over $100,000 to date to support our efforts to address the local affordable housing crisis.”

The Housing Trust Fund is a nonprofit corporation that was formed in 2003 to increase the supply of affordable housing in San Luis Obispo County. It has provided more than $18.5 million in financing to assist more than 700 units of affordable housing in the county. Find out ore at www.slochtf.org.
