The city of Vancouver is making $300,000 from the Affordable Housing Fund available for projects that provide shelter to people experiencing homelessness.

Applications are due by 5 p.m. Aug. 21. The Vancouver City Council will announce recipients in October.
People interested in applying for the funds can attend an optional open house from 3:30 to 5 p.m. July 16 at Vancouver City Hall, 415 W. Sixth St. The application and additional guidelines can be found at cityofvancouver.us/affordablehousingfund.
