Fairfield Homes believes that affordable housing — a space that is available to the occupant(s) for a reasonable amount, including gross housing and utility cost — should be available to those who need it. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development defines “affordable housing” as housing that the occupant(s), as a general rule, pay “no more than 30 percent of his or her income,” but notes that this definition may change, based on other locally-determined criteria.
Known as Athens-Fairfield, this project was both vitally important to the community and the residents and very challenging to develop. Multiple issues regarding financing, design and construction, timing, and tenant relocation have arisen throughout the process; however, Fairfield Homes has been an exemplary partner.
