Strategic Housing Programs


Blueprint Goals:

  • To end homelessness in 10 years;
  • To reduce the waiting lists for affordable housing by half in 10 years;
  • To produce Workforce Housing sufficient to accommodate projected job growth;
  • To provide affordable housing options to those with special needs.

Description

Completing the Pipeline – Meeting the Future Need

  • The Blueprint will include support to non-profit developers to produce or acquire 100 units of multifamily housing each year.  These projects would be supported through county assistance as well as low-income housing tax credits and other specialized financing programs.
     
  • Initially, these funds will be focused on projects already in the pipeline.  Projects include senior housing and assisted living; magnet housing and residential studio units, mobile home parks and residential/revitalization. The pipeline in the current Fairfax County Capital Improvement Program includes the renovation of Mondloch House shelter and conversion to residential studio units; Lewinsville Senior Housing; Magnet Housing at West Ox; the Residences at North Hill Park; expansion and redevelopment of Crescent Apartments as part of the revitalization of Lake Anne; the conversion of a vacated group home to housing for disabled veterans; and the rehabilitation/replacement of Lincolnia Assisted Living.

  • To ensure a sufficient supply of affordable housing in the future, projects must be planned and developed now.

  • The county should explore opportunities to foster the involvement of the private development community, via organizations such as HomeAid, to participate in FCRHA construction and rehabilitation projects as a means to reduce cost.
