Westchester Taking Applications for Affordable Housing


Submitted by Thomas Dixon

Applications are being accepted on the fair and affordable homes for sale in Westchester through a county government program.

These single-family properties and condominiums range in size from one to five bedrooms. The deadline to submit applications to the non-profit Housing Action Council is April 24. They can be mailed or dropped off at the office (55 South Broadway Tarrytown, N.Y.).

Westchester County purchased these homes at market value and is selling them at affordable prices to qualified individuals and families. The price for fair and affordable homes range $125,000 to $300,000.

These 30-plus homes are among the 790 units that the county is developing in accordance with the 2009 housing settlement.  The settlement permitted the county to satisfy up to 25% of the required 750 units with existing housing.  The properties will remain affordable for 50 years.
