Affordable Housing

Background: Focusing City Resources on Affordable Housing

It’s clear that Salt Lake City – along with much of the county – is in a housing crisis.

City Council Members (who also serve as the Board of Directors of the City’s Redevelopment Agency, or RDA) are laser-focused on making a big impact to address this critical issue.

To do this, Council Members are combing through the City’s budgets, particularly the RDA budget, to identify unused or underutilized money that can be reallocated for housing initiatives. The decision to fund housing that the city’s workforce can afford does not mean the Council/Board is withdrawing support for other RDA projects. The Council/Board has scheduled public hearings about what to do with the rest of the RDA Budget for November 1 at 7:00 p.m. and November 15 at 2:00 p.m.

Here is what the City Council (RDA Board) is doing to fund Affordable Housing: View the Fact Sheet.
