Targeted to respond to Dallas' urgent need for additional affordable housing units, the Dallas Housing Opportunity Fund (DHOF) promotes fair housing by fostering investments that dismantle long-standing patterns of segregated housing. The DHOF leverages municipal funds with private capital to drive much-needed development in Dallas.


The mission-oriented investment fund invests in and alongside local housing developers to create and preserve affordable housing options for residents of the City of Dallas. The fund aims to create or retain housing units for households earning at or below 120% of the area median income of the City of Dallas.

"Improving the mixture of housing in Dallas is ultimately good for employers, who may otherwise struggle to attract workers because of prohibitive housing costs, and good for families, who are searching for quality housing near good jobs and schools.


The City of Dallas will benefit from these positive effects for years to come."
