A Resolution Directing Staff to Proceed with Development and Implementation of a Pilot Affordable Housing Program

 

Topic Description:

 

On June 18, 2007, Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA) awarded Fauquier County $1,000,000 in Sponsoring Partnerships and Revitalizing Communities (SPARC) funding for its affordable housing program for first time home-buyers, which the Board of Supervisors, at its July 2007 meeting, voted to accept.  Pursuant to the acceptance of these funds, County Administration has developed key criteria for Fauquier’s pilot program.  This criteria was developed with the assistance of the consultant used to provide part-time staffing assistance to the Affordable Housing Committee, and after reviewing affordable housing program criteria established by other local jurisdictions in Virginia.  In order to implement the recommended program the Board of Supervisors adopted an Ordinance as provided for in the Code at its September meeting.

Attached is proposed program documentation.
