Philadelphia Housing Trust Fund

Expanding Housing Opportunities & Revitalizing Neighborhoods



The Philadelphia Housing Trust Fund is an innovative and vital tool for building and preserving affordable homes and advancing equitable neighborhood revitalization. It was established in 2005 in a collaborative effort among community organizations and city and state officials.

Specifically, the Philadelphia Housing Trust Fund supports the development of new affordable homes, repair of existing homes, and foreclosure/homeless prevention programs.

To date, over 14,000 low- and moderate-income families, seniors, disabled and homeless people have gained access to expanded housing opportunities through the Philadelphia Housing Trust Fund. The Trust Fund has also leveraged more than $337 million in non-city funds; created hundreds of jobs; expanded the City’s tax base; and, revitalized neighborhoods.
