What is affordable housing? The generally accepted definition of affordability is for a household to pay no more than 30 percent of its annual income on housing. The resources below list houses or apartments for which rent is based on income, as well as reasonably priced, attractive, and well-managed rental housing developments, transitional housing, and homeless shelters serving Jefferson, Berkeley and Morgan counties.
The Partnership for Affordable Housing, in concert with Jefferson County Community Ministries, offers a no-interest loan to cover the deposit on rental housing for qualified Jefferson County residents.
