Will USCIS accept a trust fund as a source of income for the purposes of sponsoring my husband? In the process of completing my petition on his behalf. The amount of the trust is 100,000, I have a dependent and my Mother is the trustee. I am not employed nor do I have any other income. Would this be accepted by immigration?

The I-864 does allow assets to be used to supplement income, but the assets must be convertible to cash within one year to be counted. The rule is that $5 in assets = $1 income, and it appears that even if your trust counted as an asset for this purpose (and I am pretty sure it does not), then you will still be shy of the $22,000 that would be required to sponsor your husband.
I suggest you try to find a joint sponsor. Good luck!
