Affordable and Workforce Dwelling Units
Flats is pleased to offer applicants below market, limited-availability rental
rates. These rates help households afford to live in Fairfax County, near
employment centers and transportations options - and avoid long, expensive commutes
from further away. Rates depend on household size, income and type of unit.
Please contact the leasing office for details about availability and requirements for eligibility.
What is the Affordable Dwelling Unit (ADU) Rental Program?
The ADU Rental Program was established when the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors
approved the Affordable Dwelling Unit Ordinance in July 1990. The program provides qualified
low and moderate income households the opportunity to live at a reduced rent in some of the new privately-owned and privately managed market-rate apartment communities located in Fairfax County.
In the apartment communities listed in this brochure, there are two different limits on the rents and maximum household incomes. Two-thirds (2/3) of the ADU rentals in each development are reserved for households with incomes up to 70% of the Area Median Income (AMI), and one-third (1/3) of the units are set aside for households with incomes up to 50% of the AMI median income, adjusted for family size.
What is the Workforce Dwelling Unit (WDU) Rental Program?
The WDU Rental Program is designed to help working households afford to live in Fairfax County, near employment centers and transportations options and avoid those long, expensive commutes from further away. In short, the WDU Rental Program can help you live near where you work and spend less time on the road.
The WDU Rental Program provides income qualified households the opportunity to live at a reduced rent in some of the new privately-owned and operated market rate apartments communities in the county. In the apartment communities listed in this brochure, there is a range of limits on incomes and rents for the WDUs, based in part on the size of your household (see back for more details). If you are interested in renting a unit, please contact the propertys leasing office directly. The program is still new, so the availability of rental WDUs is limited but many more units are expected to be delivered in the market over the next few years.
