Workforce Housing Loan Program

Mixed-Income and Mixed-Use / Mixed-Income


New Workforce Housing Options Allow up to
80% of Units with Unrestricted Incomes


When it comes to financing workforce and other affordable housing developments, one size does not fit all. Each locality has its own population characteristics and housing needs. Local governments and developers need to be able to choose financing that fits the housing needs, preferences and demographic mix of their community.

Virginia Housing has expanded the Mixed-Income (MI) and Mixed-Use / Mixed-Income (MUMI) programs to offer new lending options. Our new Workforce Housing Loan Program allows for a broader range of incomes.

The Workforce Housing program requires that a percentage of units must be reserved for residents whose annual income does not exceed certain limits. The rest of the units maybe rented to residents at any income level. The charts below describe requirements for each loan product. If the property includes any commercial/retail space, then the property must be located in a designated revitalization area.

All Workforce Housing loans can be used to finance a property with or without a commercial/retail component.
