Homebuyer Assistance Program
Join the Waiting List
The city has in effect an Affordable Housing Ordinance, which requires most new residential developments to provide at least 10% of their units for sale at affordable below-market prices to qualified buyers. The city maintains a waiting list of applicants interested in this program. Completing and returning the Homebuyer Assistance Program application will place your name on the list for all affordable purchase opportunities, both current and future.
You will find answers here to frequently asked questions about the program.

It is important to note that affordability covenants are placed upon homes purchased through this program and if a program participant sells the affordable unit for a profit within 45 years, the city will be entitled to a portion of that profit.

Income Limits

Current income limits are listed in the chart below. You must include the income of all persons in the household who are 18 years of age or older.
