FCRHA Honors John Payne on His Retirement

John Payne, Deputy Director of Real Estate at Fairfax County Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), will complete his distinguished service with the county on October 7, 2014.  The Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) and HCD wish our friend a happy and prosperous retirement.

At a recent meeting, the FCRHA recognized John for his 34 years of outstanding service to the FCRHA and the citizens of Fairfax County.
 
John served in a variety of positions with HCD including Director of Revitalization and Real Estate Planning, and Director of Design, Development and Construction. He provided effective leadership throughout his career and played a key role in the implementation of the “Penny for Affordable Housing” initiative that resulted in leveraging funds and acquisitions to preserve approximately 2700 units of affordable housing since 2004. His expertise in land use and development facilitated the county’s effort to adopt a workforce housing program that led to private developer commitments of over 4600 workforce housing units.

New VHDA Accessible Housing Registry Launches

On-line Registry Offers Easy Access to Listing of Accessible Housing Units

The Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA) is creating an Accessible Housing Registry through virginiahousingsearch.com for jurisdictions across the Commonwealth.

This registry offers renters with disabilities, social service providers, advocates, housing locators, property providers, and others a fast, free way to identify and list accessible housing units that are for rent.  The website, which is accessible for people with disabilities, is hosted through Social Serve, a non-profit organization that provides customized housing locators.
The Fairfax County Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD)/Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) website now contains a link to the VHDA Accessible Housing Registry.  To access the Registry and view additional resources on accessible housing, please visit HCD’s homepage at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/rha  or by clicking the links below:
