Affordable Homeownership

Affordable HomeownershipFor more than 40 years, Fairfax County has provided homeownership assistance to thousands of low- to moderate-income homebuyers seeking to achieve the American dream of homeownership. We know that buying a home can be a very complex and confusing process - especially in the Fairfax County housing market - but we have a variety of resources and trained experts that can help you all along the way. Through our programs we can:

  • Provide access for low- and moderate-income households to homes at below-market prices through the Affordable Dwelling Unit and Workforce Dwelling Unit programs.
  • Provide avenues for down payment assistance, lowering interest rates, and reducing mortgage principal for qualified homebuyers (as funding is available)
  • Provide pre- and post-purchase counseling


Our staff are ready and able to assist you with your homeownership questions and needs. Please email us at FTHBhomeownership@fairfaxcounty.gov, or call us at 703-246-5087. Our staff is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
