VCHTF is the only Countywide non-profit organization dedicated to funding new multi-family affordable housing. Ventura County continues to confront the challenges posed by a scarcity of housing, particularly affordable housing. In the last several decades, housing production in the County has lagged behind population and job growth, resulting in a housing deficit. Affordable housing production remains far below the demand.
