Affordable Housing Fund
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.
Affordable Housing Governing Board
The Affordable Housing Governing Board is charged with establishing policies and procedures, and overseeing the financial and administrative actions of the affordable housing fund.
