The West Virginia Housing Development Fund is pleased to release the 2021 Annual Report.
The report highlights the Fund’s continued work to make housing more affordable and accessible across the state. It also contains information about our Mountaineer Rental Assistance Program, which over the past year has awarded more than $60 million in COVID-19 relief funds to renters who demonstrate a pandemic-related economic hardship.
The Annual Report also serves as a record for what the Fund has accomplished through its Single Family and Multifamily programs and illustrates how our programs have a real impact in the communities we serve.
A few highlights:
- A partnership with Appalachian Service Project helped a Charleston woman after she lost her home to a fire.
- The Mountaineer Rental Assistance Program helped a St. Albans woman and her son who struggled to stay afloat during the pandemic.
- WVHDF and partners provided funding for a project in Wheeling that helped a first-time, low-income buyer achieve the dream of homeownership.
“We are proud of what we have accomplished over the past year,” said Erica Boggess, executive director of the West Virginia Housing Development Fund. “We launched an emergency rental assistance program unlike anything we have ever experienced while maintaining our existing slate of programs. It was a difficult year, and COVID-19 remains a challenge, but we will not stop in our mission to provide affordable and accessible housing for all of West Virginia.”
