Affordable Housing Program

Single-family homes are built on Town acquired parcels. Typically done in "Phases" which include 5 or more homes. The price of a home is determined by available funding sources. The program is open to income-eligible first-time homebuyers who are screened and if found eligible placed in a "Lottery". If chosen, "winners" must obtain a mortgage. A list of Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) purchased residential properties presently awaiting development is attached.
