Housing & Community Development

Housing and Community Development helps shape the city’s economic future and fosters a better quality of life for the citizens of Fountain Valley by offering a variety of programs related to housing and neighborhood preservation.

PROGRAMS
In order to assist households with home ownership and/or home improvements for Fountain Valley residents, the following programs were created:
 
Affordable Housing Projects
Liberty at Founders Village: The City of Fountain Valley previously provided funds to the developer.  In return, all of the units are required to be sold to Low or Moderate income eligible households, at an affordable price. Click Here to view the list.
  
Heil Park: The City of Fountain Valley previously provided funds to the developer.  In return, all of the units are required to be sold to Low income eligible households, at an affordable price. Click Here to view the list.

Occasionally,  units come up for resale at these two projects. Subsequent buyers must meet income eligibility and affordability criteria for the term of the affordability. Please note that the City of Fountain Valley does not maintain a list of units currently available for sale. The City does not pre-qualify homebuyers when no units are available. Therefore, the City does not maintain a list of potentially eligible homebuyers.

Additionally, The City of Fountain Valley will only review potential homebuyer documentation, at the time an offer is being presented to the listing agent for a unit that is currently for sale.
