Developments can be created with restricted deeds that help achieve local worker housing goals. For example, homes may only be purchased by residents who work in the county, have lived there more than 2 years, are 55 or older, or disabled, and making 60- to 100-percent of the Area Median Income. A variety of housing types can be incorporated based on the financial capability of the applicants prior to construction.
OCTOBER 2022 UPDATE: Though any developer or property owner can create deed restrictions on their own, the Panhandle Affordable Housing Alliance has taken the lead on partnering with private developers to build homes with deed restrictions to ensure access to and continued affordability of housing for workers. More information on PAHA's private market solutions is available BELOW.
