Housing Programs

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

Buy-Down Program

The Buy-Down program allows the County to purchase a favorably priced market rate unit and place a deed restriction on the property, requiring the unit’s occupant to work full time in Summit County and to resell the unit at a discounted price.

Housing Helps

Summit County has implemented a new program called Housing Helps to help create, maintain and preserve the County’s existing housing stock for the Summit County workforce.
