Juneau Affordable Housing Fund

The CBJ created the Juneau Affordable Housing Fund (JAHF) to promote the creation of affordable housing in the Capital City. On July 19, 2010, the CBJ Assembly passed an ordinance that steered $400,000 into the JAHF so that the Affordable Housing Commission could begin funding local projects that promote and provide affordable housing in Juneau.

The CBJ Assembly-appointed Affordable Housing Commission (AHC) establishes and periodically reviews the JAHF program goals and objectives based on funding, projects in process, and community housing needs. The AHC reviews, evaluates, and selects applicants for its funding recommendations to the CBJ Assembly for approval.
