The AHTF was established in 1992 by the Kentucky State Legislature to address the critical housing needs of very low-income Kentuckians, including the mentally and physically disabled, and those on the verge of homelessness.  The fund supports developments that assist persons at or below 60 percent of the area median income with a preference to help persons at or below 30 percent of the area median income.

“The need for affordable housing in Kentucky is so great that when the funding round opened in January, it only took a few days before the amount requested had surpassed the amount of funding available,” said KHC Chief Executive Officer Richard L. McQuady.  “KHC is pleased to be working with these partners to provide safe, affordable housing opportunities for Kentuckians.”

The HOME Program was created by the National Affordable Housing Act of 1990 and provides funding for various types of affordable housing production and rehabilitation.  HOME is the largest federal block grant program designed exclusively to create affordable housing for low-income households. 

The HOME Program's flexibility empowers agencies and communities to design and implement programs tailored to their own needs and priorities.  Its emphasis on consolidated planning expands and strengthens partnerships among all levels of government and the private sector.
