Other Affordable Housing


In addition to government-subsidized public housing, Fresno Housing Authority has developed affordable housing through a mix of Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTCs), grants, and/or conventional funding.

To understand qualifications for affordable housing programs or to see if affordable housing units are available, contact specific affordable housing developments directly. Once an applicant is determined to be qualified for an affordable housing unit, the exact rent amount to be paid by the tenant will be determined by guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The amount will be approximately 30% of a household’s adjusted gross income.
