Let’s face it: Finding an affordable place to rent in Fairfax County is often difficult – especially for people who are just starting their careers, who are new to the area, or who earn more modest incomes. The WDU Rental Program is designed to help working households afford to live in Fairfax County, near employment centers and transportations options – and avoid those long, expensive commutes from further away. In short, the WDU Rental Program can help you live near where you work – and spend less time on the road.
The WDU Rental Program provides income-qualified households the opportunity to live at a reduced rent in some of the new privately-owned and operated market rate apartments communities in the county. In the apartment communities listed in this brochure, there is a range of limits on incomes and rents for the WDUs, based in part on the size of your household (see back for more details). If you are interested in renting a unit, please contact the property’s leasing office directly. The program is still new, so the availability of rental WDUs is limited – but many more units are expected to be delivered in the market over the next few years.
