Private Sector Funders

The Stable Steady Strong Campaign recognizes its important and generous donors

While increasing the number of available affordable housing units is a major goal of the Polk County Housing Trust Fund we recognize that without proper support services lower income persons risk never being able to access or retain those units. Non-profit agencies operating in Polk County are the source of those services and the PCHTF allocates funding for them.

Each year the Trust Fund manages a fund raising campaign for housing services in the business community. Business is increasingly recognizing that affordable housing is an issue directly related to its success. Much work has been done in this community that recognizes the importance of quality of life to workforce growth and retention and to enhancing competitive educational opportunities across the entire age spectrum. Providing affordable housing impacts each of these areas. Investing in affordable housing is a good business decision.
