The Legislature created the the Affordable Housing Fund in 2001 to provide funding for both technical assistance and housing assistance to non-profits and government entities and to encourage stronger partnerships, collaboration and greater involvement of local communities in meeting housing needs in West Virginia. The Affordable Housing Fund receives a $20 transfer fee from residential real estate transfers and the sale of manufactured homes. This fee is solely for the benefit of governments, 501c3 non-profits and public housing authorities. The Fund will begin administering this program in June 2018.
