About the Bridging Affordability Program: Bridging Affordability is an integral component of the FY 2012 and FY 2013 Housing Blueprint. The program is designed to provide funding to non-profits, via a competitive process, for use as rental subsidies and capital for the acquisition of additional affordable units to address the homelessness and waiting list goals of the Blueprint. Of the approximately $7.5 million available in FY 2012 and FY 2013 funds, up to $7 million is available for rental subsidies and/or capital acquisition and up to $500,000 is available to fund supportive services in rental subsidy projects.
