Affordable Housing Trust Fund

Revere's Affordable Housing Trust Fund (AHTF) Board of Trustees was established in July 2021 following a unanimous vote of the Revere City Council. The AHTF is administered by the trustees to provide for the creation and preservation of affordable housing within the City of Revere for the benefit of low- and moderate-income households.

About the Board of Trustees

The AHTF Board of Trustees works in conjunction with the Mayor's Office and other city departments and boards, particularly with the Office of Planning and Community Development. The Board operates under Chapter 2.90 of the Revised Ordinances of the City of Revere and Massachusetts General Law Chapter 44 Section 55C.
