The County’s Affordable Housing Plan calls for housing “at a variety of price ranges so that firefighters, teachers, police, young people and elders can live comfortably in our community.” An objective of this goal suggests that the County “regularly evaluate the amount, distribution and need for affordable and mid-range priced housing.” Another objective asks that the County “seek methods to qualify the County’s low and moderate-income household for federal affordable housing programs.” In addition:
The Plan accurately identifies specific affordable housing needs in the County and sets realistic goals for meeting those needs.
The plan has been approved by the New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority,which qualifies the County for receipt of State and Federal subsidies.
The Ordinance establishes the legal authorization for offering County assistance to non-government entities who want to help meet our affordability goals.
The Plan outlines the specific housing assistance programs that the County may choose to pursue in the coming years.
