The affordable housing rules strictly limit our ability to consider special circumstances or hardships. The following preferences are allowed:
- Affordable housing rules require that we give priority to households that can utilize all bedrooms in a home as a bedroom. For example, a household of three would have preference over a household of one for a two-bedroom home.
- Preference is also given for households that have a demonstrated need for the specific handicap accommodations when they are available in a specific unit.
- Many municipalities have elected to give “Regional Preference” to households that live or work within the affordable housing region where the unit is location.
