Housing Guidelines

The Eagle County Affordable Housing Guidelines are intended to promote sustainable communities in Eagle County through the creation of permanently affordable housing stock.  The Guidelines call for the provision of for sale housing for Households earning 100% or less of the area median income (“AMI”) - Households that have little or no opportunity to purchase market rate housing without significant subsidy.  The Guidelines encourage the building of rental units that are affordable to Households earning 80% or less of AMI.  The Guidelines also offer options for providing housing priced for local residents with incomes greater than 100% AMI since market rate housing opportunities for these Households are also limited in terms of unit type and location.  

The Eagle County Affordable Housing Guidelines: Administrative Procedures is the document that provides the technical procedures for developing, purchasing, owning, selling, and renting Affordable Housing.  The Administrative Procedures includes specific eligibility criteria, AMI levels, purchase prices and rents, sale and leasing procedures, payment in lieu calculations, employment generation rates and other information relevant to the development and operation of Affordable Housing.  The Administrative Procedures are to be read in conjunction with the Eagle County Affordable Housing Guidelines.  

Both the Eagle County Affordable Housing Guidelines and the Administrative Procedures were drafted in response to the 2012 Eagle County Housing Needs Assessment.
