Program Description

  Affordable Housing Programs

This program creates and preserves affordable single-family housing units. It enforces Chapter 25A of the County Code to ensure that Moderately Priced Dwelling Units (MPDUs) are provided and monitored for resale control. The Code requires that 12.5 percent to 15.0 percent of an approved development of 20 dwelling units or more be MPDUs, depending on the amount of density bonus achieved. The housing units produced are marketed at controlled prices, which makes them affordable to moderate-income households. Additional single-family housing programs provide funding to replace and rehabilitate single-family housing units, and provide energy efficiency solutions and savings. Also, this program is responsible for the Work Force Housing Program.
