Affordable Housing Trust Fund (AHTF) 2060 Funds

Affordable Housing Trust Fund (AHTF) 2060 Funds are provided to the City of Everett from Snohomish County through an Interlocal Agreement. The Snohomish County Auditor collects a surcharge of $10.00 on all instruments, except assignments or substitutions of previously recorded deeds of trust, recorded within the county. Enacted by Ordinance 02.065, the Snohomish County Council created the Affordable Housing Trust Fund to provide additional funding resources for building operation and maintenance activities for housing projects affordable to very low-income people as well as to assist in development and preservation of affordable low-income housing. Washington State Laws of 2002, Chapter 294 §2 requires the Affordable Housing Trust Fund to be allocated according to an interlocal agreement between the county and the cities and towns within the county, consistent with countywide and local housing needs and policies.
