Affordable Housing

In addition to Section 8 and Low-Income Public Housing, The Housing Authority of the County of Kern is an active developer of affordable housing, acquiring and building housing to help meet the affordable housing needs in Kern County. To understand qualifications for affordable housing programs or to see if affordable housing units are available, contact specific affordable housing developments directly. Once an applicant is determined to be qualified for an affordable housing unit, the exact rent amount to be paid by the tenant will be determined by guidelines set by the housing development’s funding sources.
