Housing Choice Loan Program

If your municipality qualifies for a designation as a Housing Choice Community, it may be eligible for an interest rate discount on new loans appearing on the 2019 Intended Use Plan

Housing Choice Loan Program

Communities that have achieved the “Housing Choice” designation under the Commonwealth’s Housing Choice Initiative will be eligible for an interest rate reduction up to .50% from the standard below market rate of 2% offered by the Trust. 

The Trust is proud to support the Commonwealth’s efforts in expanding affordable housing, and by providing more subsidy, it will make vital water projects that are needed to support this development more affordable.
