Keeping Fairfax Affordable

On behalf of the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority (FCRHA) I welcome you to our website.  Since 1966, our mission has been to provide safe, affordable homes for the residents of Fairfax County; and to assist the disabled and senior members of our community.  Through our efforts nearly 20,000 people live in stable environments, including teachers, first responders and nurses who serve our County every day.  Through our outreach, non-profit partners are able to join in this effort and provide necessary care for people with special needs. And with our assistance many people are able to purchase their first home.  We are proud of what we do for our neighbors and county residents.  To find out more and learn how we might be of assistance, feel free to browse our website.
