Additional Committed Affordable Housing Units

Privately owned and operated rental properties can also be labeled “committed affordable” by virtue of receiving state, federal and/or local resources to support the new development, acquisition, and/or rehabilitation of affordable housing. Rents and income limits can vary depending on the requirements tied to each unit or property.

Note for Property Owners: To have your property listed among the opportunities for committed affordable housing on our website, please email us the name of the property, address, phone number and a description of the affordable units that you have (studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, etc.).
