Grants to Missouri nonprofit organizations and for-profit developers to meet the housing needs of low-income individuals and families. Funding is available for a broad range of housing needs, such as rental assistance, homelessness prevention, rehabilitation or new constructions of rental housing, and home repair.

Housing proposals must:

  • Meet a demonstrated need for housing for very low income persons;
  • Provide housing and related services in compliance with the statute;
  • Leverage Trust Fund dollars with other grants or loans, tax credits, or other forms of subsidy;
  • Provide housing and/or housing services to persons below 50 percent of median income with corresponding rents or fees;
  • Be economically feasible.

Missouri Housing Trust Fund monies shall be used to provide housing and housing services to individuals and families with incomes at or below 50 percent of the area median income. Fifty-percent of the funds must be used for individuals and families at or below 25 percent of the area median income

MHDC has identified the following grant types as categories to meet the needs of Missourians:

  1. Housing Assistance: available to organizations that provide housing assistance to literally homeless individuals and families
  2. Emergency Assistance: available for organizations that provide housing assistance to individuals and families at immediate risk of becoming homeless
  3. Operating Funds: available for organizations that provide housing or housing services for the purpose of paying salaries and benefits necessary for operation of the organization. Priority will be given to Operating Funds requests that are paired with another MHTF grant type
  4. Home Repair or Modifications: available to organizations that provide housing services for the payment of certain repairs or modifications of homeowner-occupied single-family homes 
  5. Construction / Rehabilitation: available for organizations that provide housing for the purpose of payment of costs of new construction or modification or rehabilitation of existing facilities

Nonprofit Allocation:

As mandated by the Missouri Housing Trust Fund legislation, 30 percent of the Missouri Housing Trust Fund allocation will be set aside for proposals sponsored by nonprofit organizations. Any funds recaptured will be reallocated at the discretion of MHDC.
