Housing Division

A home is more than four walls, floors, and a roof. Home is a place to grow, raise a family and find peace of mind. Everyone, no matter their financial situation, deserves a clean, safe, and beautiful place to live.   


Affordable Housing

The Housing Division provides low-income to moderate-income residents with additional help when:

- buying a first home,

- making repairs to an existing home, or

implementing green-building practices.

The Housing Division works closely with other agencies on affordable housing, to develop opportunities for eligible families through financial assistance loans.
