The County of Sonoma (“County”) established the County Fund for Housing (CFH) in 2003 to provide financial assistance for the development and preservation of affordable housing located in Sonoma County. The purpose of the CFH is to develop, preserve, and accelerate the pace of development of below market-rate housing for low-, very low-, and extremely low-income households. To achieve this purpose, CFH resources shall be used to provide loans and grants to qualified developers, public entities, groups, and individuals to undertake activities which create, maintain, or expand the County’s affordable housing stock.
CFH receives funds from multiple local sources, including, but not limited to:
• County of Sonoma General Fund
• County of Sonoma Reinvestment and Revitalization Funds
• Developer In-Lieu Fees
• Transient Occupancy Tax
• CFH loan processing fees, interest, and loan repayments
