Office of Affordable Housing
The Office of Affordable Housing is tasked with managing the Affordable Housing Fund’s day-to-day administration and serves as the point of contact for affordable housing in the City of Lexington.
Lexington Fayette Housing Survey
We have contracted with EHI Consultants to conduct an analysis of Lexington’s affordable housing needs now and into the future. The results will help guide our office and the Affordable Housing Board as it allocates funding to new projects.
The mission of the Affordable Housing Fund is to leverage public investment to preserve, produce, and provide safe, quality, affordable housing. The Affordable Housing Fund was created with an initial allocation of $3 million from Lexington's FY 2014 general fund budget. Annual allocations of at least $2 million were adopted by Ordinance 103-2014.
