While jobs in Fairfax County may be plentiful, the development of housing has not kept pace with job growth. Furthermore, the cost of housing has placed Fairfax County out of reach, even for some who work here. The Magnet Housing Program provides attractive, well-located, affordable rental housing for qualified applicants so they can reach their career goals while enjoying the benefit of an affordable monthly rent. The program is operated by the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) and the Fairfax County Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD).
The Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) currently owns 8 affordable senior housing communities and 2 affordable assisted living communities throughout the Fairfax County area. These communities typically feature gated garden style communities with one-bedroom units.
The Affordable Dwelling Unit (ADU) Rental Program and Workforce Dwelling Unit (WDU) Program provides qualified low and moderate income households the opportunity to live at a reduced rent in some of the new privately-owned and privately managed market-rate apartment communities located in Fairfax County.
