Affordable Housing


Affordable Housing


The Habitat Company offers an array of Affordable subsidized and non-subsidized housing. "Subsidized housing" is also known as "Section 8" housing, in which the resident's portion of the rent is based on a percentage of his or her household's income. "Non-subsidized affordable housing" is targeted toward low-income renters who pay a low fixed rent.

Subsidized Housing

Due to high demand for subsidized housing, The Habitat Company maintains wait lists for its subsidized low income housing programs. Most of these wait lists currently are closed and are not accepting applications.
