The Midlands Housing Trust Fund (MHTF) was created to provide financing, technical assistance, and advocacy for the construction, rehabilitation, and preservation of affordable housing in the Midlands.

MHTF is a revolving loan fund that lends to housing developers for creation of affordable housing for households earning less than 80% of Area Median Income in a seven-county area of central South Carolina (Calhoun, Fairfield, Kershaw, Lexington, Newberry, Orangeburg, and Richland counties).

Housing is considered to be affordable when people pay no more than 30% of their income on housing costs. Households paying more than 30% of their income for housing are “housing cost-burdened.” More than 50% of renters and 35% of homeowners in the Midlands are housing cost-burdened.
