The Marin Workforce Housing Trust is a unique public/private partnership between the Marin business community, the Marin Community Foundation and the County of Marin. The Trust was created to meet the challenges of housing affordability for workers in Marin County. Through our revolving loan fund, we provide low-interest rate loans for the construction, rehabilitation and preservation of homes affordable by working families, the retired workforce and those most vulnerable in our communities.

For our multifamily rental program, we target our loans to fill critical gaps in existing affordable housing finance – as “first-in” money to purchase land, secure sites and fund pre-development work and as “last-in” money to close the funding gap for developments that otherwise would not be able to be built. Once construction is complete, the loans are repaid and reinvested in other workforce housing developments.

The newest addition to our loan programs is Marin Agricultural Housing. The purpose of this program is to rehabilitate, replace existing, or build 200 homes for agricultural workers and their families. This effort is designed to ensure the long-term affordability and maintenance of the housing.
This is one of our goals, and is currently under development.
