    About Ventura County Housing Trust Fund:
    VCHTF is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. Its mission is to support more housing choices, by generating and leveraging financial resources, working in partnership with the public, private, and non-profit sectors throughout Ventura County. The Housing Trust Fund makes below-market rate loans for pre-development costs of affordable housing developments with a priority for projects serving farmworkers, homeless persons, veterans, and youth transitioning out of foster care. “The donations generated by this event will be leveraged with a matching grant from the State of California, Proposition 1C (Housing and Emergency Shelter Trust Fund Act of 2006) Local Housing Trust Fund Program. Every dollar raised will double the impact to create new affordable housing units desperately needed in our high cost housing market. VCHTF brings new dollars to the table to help fill the gap left by drastic cuts in traditional Federal, State and local housing funding sources,” said Linda Braunschweiger, CEO of VCHTF.
