SLIHC membership benefits
Contact SLIHCRevolving Loan Fund
The Consortium offers its members an $85,000 "Housing Opportunity (revolving loan) Fund" to purchase land and/or build the infrastructure for the development of affordable housing. To date, the fund has been used to help support the development of 12 Habitat for Humanity homes, 33 low-rent apartments in the Hillyard neighborhood, the rehab and construction of 185 senior rentals on Spokane's south hill, and the construction of 50 rentals for people experiencing chronic homelessness.
To assist its members SLIHC offers training about the development and operation of affordable housing, strategies for working with homeless populations, and organizational development.
Semi-Annual Rental Survey
The Consortium conducts a semi-annual rental survey of low income rental housing to provide an update of the number of affordable rental units, unit types and unit vacancies in Spokane County. The collected information helps our community make informed decisions about affordable housing development.
Annual Fair Housing Conference
SLIHC partners with area organizations and local governments to provide training related to affordable and fair housing issues, including an annual Fair Housing Conference. For information on Fair Housing trainings, contact the Northwest Fair Housing Alliance.
