Housing Programs

Summit County has two programs specifically developed to provide and maintain workforce housing in Summit County.

Buy-Down Program

In the Buy-Down program the County purchases a market rate unit, deed restricts the unit to be occupied by a member of the local workforce, then resales the newly deed restricted unit at a below market sales price.

Housing Helps

In Housing Helps the County pays an owner to place a deed restriction on their home. The restriction requires a local worker to occupy the unit and has no rent or appreciation cap.
