Albemarle County participates in efforts to increase the number of affordable living choices within its borders through working with non-profit partners such as the

Piedmont Housing Alliance

(PHA) and the

Albemarle Housing Improvement Program

(AHIP). Ron White, the County’s Director of Housing, gave the Board of Supervisors a report on his office’s activities during the previous fiscal year at their meeting on August 5, 2009.

The Board also heard a report from Jennifer Jacobs, the interim director of the Albemarle Housing Improvement Program (AHIP). She said AHIP can only continue to help people in need with the continued support of the County.

“Safe and stable housing and safe and stable families are a priority if what we want is a safe and stable community,” Jacobs said.

The County’s Housing Committee will hold a strategic work session on August 13, 2009 to discuss how to implement the County’s housing policy over the next five years.
