- Increase the stock of affordable housing
- Preserve the existing housing stock
- Reduce substandard housing
- Support homeownership initiatives, such as downpayment assistance programs
Through the AHSP, the County offers several programs to promote these goals.
There are programs offered year-round, including the Permit Fee Rebate Program and the Employment Housing Assistance Program.
In addition to the year round incentives, the County administers an annual loan program which offers low-interest loans to assist in the provision of affordable housing. Applications for this program are accepted once a year, and may be considered in conjunction with urgent repair and tenant-based rental assistance funding.
